I would say that there probably is life on mars. It may not be an intelligent form, but it is there. If there was an intelligent form, I do not believe that we would ever know...

I think the life is either dead or frozen...
Mars easily at one point in the creation of the galaxy in the same conditions as Earth is now allowing life to form and then moved farther from the sun killing whatever thrived...

As Aslan said, no Mars probe has found a fossilized plant on Mars. Even if life did develop on Mars in it's infancy, it would have never progressed to the point of plants and trees. The best we can hope for are fossilized micro-organisms, certainly not plants or foliage.

so we're talking dead bacteria, right? but jupiter has a moon (europa or something) that scientist say may have a liquid ocean beneath the surface, caused by jupiter's gravitational pull.

What about the "microbe" fossils in the martian meteorite?  Did they turn out to be something else?  I had'nt heard anything about them for awhile.  Anyhow, I remember reading in my good ol' World Book Encyclopedias that some of the first Mars landers detected chemical reactions consistent with life.  I know I'm dangerously close to entering ShadyLady territory, but I thought I remembered reading about bacteria on Mars somewhere.

Nothing to see here.

There still seems to be some uncertainty over the martian meteorite, essentially every few years there is another claim that it really does contain microbes, and shortly afterwards somebody else says something that casts doubt again and it's soon forgotten about. At the moment I'd say it's pretty inconclusive.

Viking did this experiment, and the first time, the results did indeed indicate the prescence of microbes in the soil. However, they repeated the experiment dozens of times and were never able to get the same results. They concluded that the first result had been due to something other than what they originally thought, and the experiment was regarded as not having found conclusive evidence of life on Mars.

my science teacher said once that there may be carbon dioxide on mars, except the atmosphere is so thin that humans could not  live there... at the moment. alien.gif
