    Besides I don't know how to start chit, nor do I know how to open my mouth and make words appear on the forums.

    However that is impractical. Those things barely work, as there is no uniform speech. Besides I don't think it will understand my "y'all"s

    I'd say this was the case. Journalists are notorious for either being scientifically ignorant or taking extreme measures with the facts. The Dino Blood case is one of the worst I can remember where "journalists" said that scientists found dinosaurs blood and ran with it as if it was fresh rather then extremely dessicated, decayed veins, some partially fossilized that had to be chemically hydrated dozens of times to even get them to identifiable.

    The news cast it as fresh Dino blood rather then what is actually was.

    Impractical? I don't think so. I've used DNS for over a year now and it works great. (about 120 words per minute) But you get what you pay for.

    I just hope that if we find microbes, it won't deter us from moving our species out amongst the planets/moons. Its kind of dumb to keep all our eggs in one basket, and I can totally see a group like PETM being formed(People for the ethical treatment of microbes).
    Microbes...(emphasis on micro),our carbon FOOTPRINT (size 11 here) would be so massive,PETM would most certainly have to be involved. SAVE THE GLACIERS !

    If, indeed, life does exist on Mars, then life must exist elsewhere in the Universe. As a matter of fact, life could very well be the norm for many solar systems. And, if life is confirmed on Mars, it would dash the theory that we are somehow unique. What I mean is that it would be foolish to think that, with all that space in existence, our infinitesimally small corner of that space is the only place where life exists.

    NASA is going to announce their discovery at a news conference, which will be at 7PM tonight, and will be carried live on NASA TV.

    Article is here.

    NOTE: Want to find carbon-based life on other planets in other systems? Just look for the fart gas.
    Science is in shambles everywhere you look. Junk science rules the day. At some point you`d think they would hold back just a little on such things as cow farts.The medical sciences kill more than 300 thousand people each year in this country alone...(google CDC/wrongful deaths). The meteor found years ago was,PROOF...bla bla bla! I have to much science education to even want to watch these goofballs on the tube. You watch and report back to me in the year 2525 ,when they have proof. THANKS

    Other planets can sustain life! Good ****. Now we can start looking for a new planet to occupy and destroy after this one. Or we could behave ourselves like the space hippies in Black Sabbath's "into the void."

    Re: Life on Mars

    This is exciting news!!! I have always wanted to know--yet not wanted to know at the same time, if there was indeed life close to us. It has always seemed very realistic that there would be life on planets and in solar systems other than ours. But it's still creeeepppppyyy to know for sure!
