Ground-penetrating radar used by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reveals numerous huge glaciers up to one half-mile thick buried beneath layers of rock and debris. Researchers said one glacier is three time the size of Los Angeles in area.

Does anyone from WebmasterWorld think that once we start digging into that ice we will find preserved bacteria in the ice - aka past life(?) on mars?

>we will find preserved bacteria

Quite likely, and an exciting proposition.

I certainly think it is exciting/interesting - What are the implications of finding preserved bacteria on Mars? Would that mean there was life on mars at some point?

Would that be enough to say there is/was life else where?

That's the overall idea. From ice you also get recorded data relating to weather change etc as well which will go some way towards showing the history of the planet.

Lawman got there first.

Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

Perhaps they'll also find a bus timetable.

Not 100% sold on the idea of life on Mars, but I have no doubt there is life elswhere.

I'm much more sceptical that there is complex life (animals), but there may be plant-type lifeforms as well as bacteria.

If there is intelligent life, well, fine. But I doubt humanity will ever have evidence of it, much less come in contact with it.

The bore sample will be facinating though- both for Mars and possibly an insight into the solar system as a whole.

david bowie did a song called "life on mars?" on his 4th album (hunky dory) in 1971.
he also did a song called "space oddity" on his second album of the same name.
that explains my confusion.
if you still don't know who david bowie is, get busy...
