This article states "Scientists see two possibilities, both of
them scientifically important, but one of them is sensational."

I'd consider the confirmation of _any_ life on a planet other
than Earth (other than that which we've seeded!) to be pretty
darn sensational in it's implications. Indeed, volcanism would
also be a very significant discovery on Mars.

I'm certainly not advocating sensationalist media headlines, but
it does strike me as interesting that this story appears to have
been somewhat under-played in the media to date, when compared,
for example, to the relatively loud publicity that was afforded
to the discovery of an ancient liquid water sea.

Perhaps mainstream media are just awaiting the press conferences
before hitting the hyperbole hyperdrive. This is certainly one
to watch, and could be absolutely massive in it's implications.
Once life has been detected and confirmed on another planet, the
paradigm will have well and truly shifted.

Best to all,


Dan Bright
