MarsWith NASA’s recent confirmation (September 28, 2015) of the prescence of liquid water on Mars’ surface comes a renewed interest in the eternal question, “Are we alone in the universe?”

One clue? Scientists have long known that water ice exists at the Martian poles, and that water vapor can be found in the Martian atmosphere. And in fact, no other planet or moon in our solar system is known to have liquid water on its surface, although there is evidence of entire oceans under the surface of a few moons in the solar system.

So, is there life on Mars?
