Does the revelation that mars currently or in the past supports life really surprise anyone?  Not me.

Even if there isn't life there now, this is certainly an exciting time to be alive.

Who knows what we'll know about Mars 50 years from now?
Who knows what they really know now?

In reality? No one.

We have had the technology to determine whether or not there is now, or has been in the past, life on Mars....for the past 50 years.

It's laughable when scientists say that with the new space-based telescopes...that they will be able to say for certain that there is life on a planet light years away....but they can't say for certain regarding a planet they've landed on several times?

Regardless of what you believe, NASA knows the answer already.  It's their funding that fuels the entire thing.

If I owned a private space-faring company, I'd milk it for all it was worth to gain your money in support of finding life....EVEN IF I knew it was already present.  That's just smart and savvy business sense.

And we're now at the point to where people are starting to question why so much money is being spent on space exploration and, in particular, the exploration of Mars.

Guess what's next?  What would YOU say if you were in THEIR shoes?

"We think we have evidence for past life..........but we're gonna need another $100 billion to find out...."

Gimme a friggin' break.  If they can determine if life is present through spectroscopy on a damn world 15 light years away, then they surely can't when they take our money to send lander after lander to a world that's cosmically in our own back yard.

Dr. Phil says that marriage is hard work.

I say....if marriage is hard work, you're doing it wrong.  Love is not work.  Love is eternal.

I don;t know where you got the idea from that they can determine whether life exists on planets 15 light years away. What they CAN determine is whether the conditions on that far away planet could make the existence of life 'as we know it' possible.
