Is there life on Mars?

The Victorians certainly thought so, but David Bowie seemed less sure.

Most scientists would put Bowie’s question into the past tense, asking not whether there’s life on Mars now, but whether there might have been in the distant past.

“Perseverance will hunt for ‘biosignatures’ of past microbial life,” explains the Daily Mail, seeking out promising rocks and drilling samples from their cores.

“We know that Mars has the ingredients for life,” says New Scientist, “and that long ago it was probably far warmer and wetter than today.”

It may yet be some time before we know for certain, however. Even if we find clues that there might have once been living organisms on Mars, we probably won’t be sure until we can bring those clues back to Earth and examine them in the lab, says Johnson.

“The rock samples will be picked up by another mission in 2026,” says the Daily Mail, and only then will scientists see definitive results.

The fact that mars and earth came out of the same gasexplosion, it would wonder me if there never ever lived something there.
