    Ya gotta wonder what these 'Martians" could look like? Will the microbes, if found, would look similar to Terran microbes or totally different?

    This my fiends is the American government in a nut shell. Next they'll be briefed on the threat of a Communist Nazi Martian invasion and maybe the possibility of a group of races similar to the covenant in Halo

    Tomorrow on the US government agenda: Manbearpig; a real threat

    If they are microbes, they'd better not bring any back. What was that movie with the alien bacteria called? Let's not have that happen in real life.

    In one of the past Mars missions, NASA tried to grow life on mars, they spread proteins and other life enhancing substances on martian soil to see if something grew on them, they got nothing at those experiments.

    Dude, did you even read the articles? NASA, the administration that's funded to research shit like this, told the White House what was up with said stuff they were being paid for. And apparently yes, its a big deal.
