Mars, it appears, is belching a large amount of a gas that could be a sign of microbes living on the planet today.

Whatever they find, I hope they don't bring it here.

Another reason not to have a manned mission to Mars. The lifeform might hitch a ride on the return journey, like what happened to the Nostromo at LV-426.

Liberals will use this to say, "See, look at what happened to Mars"!

OR, realize how NASA has lied since day ONE.

Methane = MAGAidiots.

Send all of the ones here on a one way trip to Mars.

Sorry guys, that was me. My bad. (roll the window down)

The rovers are more sensitive to rising methane than satellites studying the atmosphere non-stop? Unless there is an active volcano we are considering what? The ice cap? And that again isn't detected from orbit?

This entire scenario leaves me considering it a delayed release of Martian information, building to something.

the life that exists thousands of feet below the oceans surface...next to volcanic vents...on our own planet, is a lot more interesting.
at this point space exploration reminds me of some kind of "science/philosophy". all based in provable theories but forced to exist in a time frame that humans don't fit in.
it's to bad we don't try to use the available resources to explain the origin of and how we'll get rid of the garbage patch in the pacific instead of maybe martian methane

Well said 1947

RIGHTISRIGHT....

I have as much chance of interaction on the nano level as I do with someone(thing) a billion light years away.
but nano i can relate to if for no other reason than it's happening in real time. when you accept the fact that you see stars in the sky that no longer exist...that's where it quits being physics and switches to philosophy for me.

Farts prove aliens exist!

Mothers world wide horrified by the news!

like what happened to the Nostromo at LV-426.

Those are just like the Democrat face huggers in DC.

They attach themselves to Taxpayers and attempt to lay the eggs of Free education and Medicare for all.

Then they drop off and attempt to look for other taxpayers....

While illegal aliens burst thru the taxpayer's chest cavity looking for the benefits they were promised.

When this planet goes to ---- because of human behavior, we won't be looking to the depths of the oceans to escape. We'll be looking to other planetary bodies.

Question: Do you believe focusing on deep oceanic exploration will produce similar technological advancements that benefit the world at large as space exploration? The Velcro shoes I'm currently wearing might have a decent argument for you, if so.

You're a despicable political hack. Give it a rest, not everything every day must be about Trump or the border. You're worse than CORKY and DANNI.

He who smelt it dealt it.

The Rover farted. Obviously. It is just too embarrassed to admit it.

i understand all of the values of space exploration...BUT, before colonization could be thought about an any realm other than scifi..you're going to need a propulsion system and work forward as to what you decide to propulse. asteroid mining holds promise as a concept but we'll melt down here on earth before that's realised i fear. and i also mentioned nano..and i believe that technology will far exceed day to day tech that was a result of space discoveries. to put human involvement/interaction with the cosmos, to date...compare humanities time here on earth for just the last 100 years...think about the pacific garbage patch. back to space...the thread a few weeks ago about all the floating debris that's becoming a hazard...will we even be able to get into space if we have to fly through a cosmic garbage patch...humans crap to close to the house
