While this is not official news that life has been discovered outside of our own little tiny planet, it certainly backs up what most scientist now agree on. We are not alone. The universe has the potential to be full of life.
The first rock sample collected by NASA’s Curiosity rover shows ancient Mars could have been home to primitive life forms, agency officials announced Tuesday.
“A fundamental question for this mission is whether Mars could have supported a habitable environment. From what we know now, the answer is yes,” said Michael Meyer, lead scientist for NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, during a press conference Tuesday.
