Life on Mars

First, is was speculated that life on Earth might’ve been a transplant from Mars. Vox populi started debating, discussing and otherwise reacting at such a fascinatingly improbable possibility.

Sure, we all are from Mars. “Yeah… Billion yeas ago or so — who counts, really, a few millions more, a few millions less — we turned our Mother Planet (Mars) to shit, and then flew away to do the same to the planet Earth. Soon there would be nowhere to fly”…

Pathetic pessimists! Of course there would be someplace… somewhere in the Universe… They say the Universe is expanding, don’t they?

I kept an eye on Mars exploration ever since I found this picture by Andrey Karpov awhile ago. Cute,  isn’t it?

This strange looking bird below — long neck, mismatched legs and all — is the Curiosity Rover. The image came from British publication, thus reference to the British participation in the project. I guess, Brits, too, think they are from Mars…

“Out of Curiosity” came the discovery that life may have flourished on the red planet 3.6 billion years ago.

No wonder I was somewhat skeptical about billion. Not billion, but exactly 3.6 billion!

MarsAhhh, Mars! Life must’ve been beautiful over there back then… Something like this, perhaps?
