If life ever existed on Mars, it's likely that its longest-lasting enclaves would be underground.

"If surface habitats were short-term, that doesn't mean we should be glum about prospects for life on Mars," says Bethany Ehlmann, the lead author of a new NASA report on the Red Planet, "but it says something about what type of environment we might want to look in.

This is interesting I wonder how common it might be that civilizations might live under the surface of a world.

They would have to have a reason. Why would they want to spend their entire lives underground?

To hide from the secret government, of course.

The bias against living underground has to do with our evolutionary history as tree- and later savannah-dwellers. H.G. Wells fantasized convincingly about a race of intelligent ant-like beings that lived quite happily in the interior of the Moon, in his novel: 'The First Men in the Moon'.

They hide not only because of atmospheric conditions on the Martian surface, they hide from possible alien invaders and underground water acquifers could be found within the dusty red planet. Mars is the closest thing the solar system has to earth, and the opposite of the Greenhouse effect observed on Venus oddly with a closely matched size of Earth.

Maybe they lived underground because of lack of materials to build other types of shelter or compared to other alternatives it was easy.

Why is everyone jumping on Martians being intelligent creatures? Ever think that bacteria and such might be the only life on mars?

could it be also down to food sources? seeing as human evolution seemed to be driven by the search for food.


edit to add: ofcourse Boon may be correct...and they are hiding from the government  :P

Yes, however that was science fiction and should not be confused with anything in the real world. I could list at least sixty things in that novel that make absolutely no scientific sense starting with the "gravity shield" they use to travel to the Moon.

None of these species spend their entire lives underground.
