More than 30 years after NASA's Viking landers found no evidence for organic materials on Mars, scientists say a new experiment on Mars-like soil shows Viking did, in fact, hit pay dirt.
Wow this is incredible news, maybe it will get NASA to start sending more landers and probes there. I look forward to the day when my daily commute is between Earth and Mars ;) but sadly I'd probably be dead and gone by then.
I bet those organics are from our planet because we keep landing on mars bringing stuff to mars.
Um, many now claim that the basics for life on earth was infact from Mars and came here by comets.
It is still a theory not a fact. We did not observe mars *life* coming to earth so we cant know for sure.
I would like to point out that people have been stating this for decades and been labeled "conspiracy theorists". I think we are seeing timed release of information regarding alien life. They could have repeated the experiment in the 70s but for some reason didn't bother until we've found exo worlds & super earths.
