Re: Past and Present life on Mars

There seems to be a distinct danger that we shall never find out about Mars life as we shan't be allowed to go because we might contaminate Mars, so threatening putative Mars organisms with Earth organisms.
This view ignores the exchange of meteorites between the two bodies over the past three and a half billion years or so.

Re: Past and Present life on Mars
