NASA Researchers Claim Evidence of Present Life on Mars
I knew it...I have been saying it all along. The evidence of PRESENT life on Mars is too great to ignore. There are constant images from orbiting probes that show standing water, growing and shrinking algae colonies etc...
The Rover captured a segmented fossil and quickly destroyed the specimen with the onboard RAT tool. I am excited on the release of this info:
WASHINGTON -- A pair of NASA scientists told a group of space officials at a private meeting here Sunday that they have found strong evidence that life may exist today on Mars, hidden away in caves and sustained by pockets of water.
The scientists, Carol Stoker and Larry Lemke of NASA’s Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley, told the group that they have submitted their findings to the journal Nature for publication in May, and their paper currently is being peer reviewed.
What Stoker and Lemke have found, according to several attendees of the private meeting, is not direct proof of life on Mars, but methane signatures and other signs of possible biological activity remarkably similar to those recently discovered in caves on Earth.

Now, I understand that the announcement of life...anykind of life...would challenge fundamental beliefs, and therefore NASA is releasing info with a eyedropper. Bit by bit
It's only a matter of time now until the official word is given on the discovery of life...but we knew that already...
