Scientist have discovered some molecules or some other boring shit on Mars recently. Frankly whether or not there was life on Mars is irrelevant to me. What concerns me is whether or not we have colonies on Mars.
NASA’s Curiosity rover has uncovered organic material in an ancient lakebed and confirmed a seasonal cycle of methane – offering the strongest evidence yet of potential life, past or even present, on the Red Planet.
The discoveries were revealed by NASA researchers in a highly-anticipated announcement on Thursday, and details have been published in the journal Science.
The revelations build on a similar announcement made by NASA in 2014, where scientists confirmed that they had discovered chlorinated molecules on the planet for the first time. This latest evidence, however, is far more compelling.
The Curiosity rover discovered organic matter preserved in 3-billion-year-old mudstones at the Gale Crater. The material was located in the first layers of rock, some four miles away from where the chlorinated molecules had been found.
“All life as we know it is based on organic molecules,” Jen Eigenbrode, a research scientist at Goddard, said during the press announcement, suggesting that, while this evidence doesn’t definitely prove there is life on Mars, the signs are there to investigate further.
Here’s a suggestion. We can make sure that there’s life on Mars by sending some there ie space colonists.
I guarantee that a lot of people would volunteer to be stuck in some capsule and just blasted out in the general direction of Mars as the first colonists. We don’t have to have velvet gloves about this thing. There are huge lines of people willing to volunteer for a one-way ticket to Mars.
We can work out the details later.
Just get their asses to Mars first, troubleshoot later.
Shit if there was internet on the spaceship, I’d volunteer myself. It would make no discernable difference in my lifestyle whatsoever.
With the rest of Earth getting progressively negrified, the number of volunteers is going to increase as the years go on.
Blasting off into the dark cosmos is infinitely better than having to see niggers every day.
Unfortunately, our President seems to have forgotten his pledge to conquer the Red Planet.
Which is even worse than reneging on the Wall, if true.
Get on it, DRUMPF. We need that Mars colony YESTERDAY.
Get those nerds at NASA the funding they need to make a spaceship ASAP. Do a corporate takeover if you must and rebrand NASA as the Trump Space Colonization Company. Then whip everyone into shape and build the first hotel/casino/golf course on Mars.
Call it “Marsalago” if you must, but just do it.
