Bookies Stop Taking Bets on Life on Mars

.c The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) - The information coming in from the Mars rovers is
exciting for NASA, but it's ending some of the action for
bookies in Britain.

The bookmaking firm Ladbrokes announced it's stopped taking bets
on the question of whether there was ever life on Mars.

NASA scientists said yesterday that the rover Opportunity found
strong evidence to suggest at least part of the Red Planet once
had a wet enough environment to sustain life.

A Ladbrokes spokesman says the latest odds in favor of past life
on Mars were 16-1. Back in the '70s, when the first bets were
placed, the odds were 1,000-1.

He says he expects that scientists will find evidence of past
life on Mars within the coming years.
