Ironic really, that the week before Martian the new Matt Damon film was released, NASA confirm there is water on Mars. Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed the frequency of ‘information’ releases about extraterrestrial life has increased significantly over the last 5 -10 years? I guaranty, give it 20 years and we will be told there is life out there. Quite frankly, I’m gobsmacked NASA didn’t release the fact there are microbes in the water on Mars as it is.
I mean, isn’t that a given? What water doesn’t have microorganisms and amoebas in it. I mean seriously, there isn’t even bacteria in the Martian water??? Doesn’t anyone else find THAT harder to believe than the fact there’s water on the planet? (more…)
