Humans might not have any resistance (immunity) to the microbs. A very real possibility. Look how small pox devastated the Native Americans, they had no immunity to it. This is something that should be taken very, very, very seriously. Flu's can cause pandemics, and modern humans have co-existed with them for thousands of years. Think what would happen if the martian microbs were too foreign to our immune system to recognize them or detect them. Get the point?

IF, and only IF, the bacteria can survive on Earth...

Or they might not even be able to survive Earth...Depends on how specialized, or hardy these bacteria are. True, the point is we have absolutely no idea what we're dealing with. It would be a very risky gamble, something like russian roulette.

True, the point is we have absolutely no idea what we're dealing with. You are so very right.

OK... Excuse me if I am wrong, and please correct me if I am cause I really have no idea, I am just guessing... I 'think' the oceans we have here on Earth, breath like trees do, it breathes in the carbon dioxide we breath out. And provides us with oxygen too. Meaning that oceans/water breaths. So if that is true.....? What is on Mars that is 'breathing life' into the water, and what is takeing up what the water on Mars breaths out.... DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE???

Your close, but the ocean itself isn't what breathes. It's filled with phytoplankton, tiny plant-like organisms, and it's those that ... [More]

Raptor X7 Thanks for straightening me out on that one Um... So if these micro organisms do exist in the water on Mars then would that still mean their must be some other life form on Mars, that would breathe in and out the oposite of that mico organism, therfore giving that M.Organise what it needs to breathe...?? As in if there were no humans or animals, the trees would die because there would be no-one producting carbon dioxide for the trees to inhale, and if there were no trees then humans would die cause there would be nothing producing our oxygen??? So if there was just this 1 mico organi... [More]

When martian life forms are found it will cause an amazing stir of events and discussions. The likes of which this world hasn't delt with before. No matter how i think about it i dont see how any organization could possibly want to just freely tell everyone that life has been discovered elswere from Earth. I think it Would cause panic if not just because of the pandemonium it would cause because of the fact it's tied in so much with religion and a mass population of those 'who believe'. The real trouble will probably come from those who don't believe however. So basically everybody on Earth wo... [More]

I understand the potential "mad scientist"- syndrome here, but consider what alien species (inbetween continents) can do on Earth, then image what a bacteria (which often is a survivor) from another planet might do.
