New Evidence For Martian Life

According to a team of researchers at UC-Boulder, a deep gash in the Martian surface was once a lake larger than Vermont’s Lake Champlain. (Artist’s rendering above.)

Even weirder, the lake dried up 300 million years after Mars was previously thought to have lost all its water.
Scientists say it’ll be a great place to look for Martian fossils in the future. I will wet my pants if we find an alien fossil in my lifetime. Think about it: if complex life is common enough in the universe to occur twice in the same solar system, how many other billions of planets out there are harboring life?
