Life on Mars? (Euro's view)

European Space Agency scientists think that there was and could even still be life on Mars and want a new European mission to the red planet to take samples, a conference heard on Friday.


"Mars is the most Earth-like planet in our solar system," said Agustin Chicarro, ESA Mars Express Project Scientist at the end of a one-week conference during which scientists from around the world discussed ESA's Mars mission findings so far.

Although pursuing life on other worlds is a great space hobby, it would be more beneficial to commit resources into establishing colonies upon the moon first, then after that we can pursue the study of life on other worlds (within our solar system at least). If life on Mars does exist it will still be there when we get there.

The story is sparking much interest because of the new "frozen" sea that was found in the Martian equatorial region and they believe that there may be volcanic activity underneath the ice in the North Pole (which would suggest that it would be possible for some volcano's to be heating the ice thus making it possible for life).
"Hints of life on Mars are getting stronger," said Vittorio Formisano whose team found methane and formaldehyde on Mars.


He said there was so much methane produced on Mars that there was reason to believe this had an organic origin. "Life is probably the only source that can produce so much methane."

I doubt the latter statement although I am not a scientist and a search on Google brought up nothing showing that Methane and Formaldehyde form naturally so I'll leave their argument open for now. If life was found on Mars it would probably raise the "Evolution vs. Creation" debate but I would have to wonder if their was life on Mars did it "evolve" on the planet or did it come off one of our probes? Selah!
