    Methane = Life, or an active volcano... I haven't seen any lava yet, maybe this is a big discovery.

    What's not mentioned is that I was there.

    It was a friday night, about midnight, I'd been throwing back lager since late afternoon and just polished off a Lamb Tikka Rogan Josh with Pilau rice.

    Sorry...

    :D

    Won't happen again.

    If this this turns out be proven, it would be amazing to find actual life on Mars.

    "On Earth, there are organisms called methanogens - microbes that produce methane from hydrogen and carbon dioxide. These organisms do not need oxygen to thrive, and they are thought to be the type of microbes that could possibly live on Mars."

    Now we know what the next mission will want to investigate. :cool:
