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