Life discovered on Mars... 36 years ago!
An international team of mathematicians and scientists have re-evaluated data from NASA's Viking mission to Mars over three decades ago, and have come to the conclusion that the data prove life exists on Mars.
University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine Neuropharmacologist and biologist Joseph Miller said that "On the basis of what we've done so far, I'd say I'm 99 percent sure there's life there."
That conclusion is the result of a mathematical analysis of the data, which found that the order and complexity of the soil data is far higher than what would be possible with purely geological materials and processes.
The research is being published in the International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences.http://news.discovery.com/space/mars-life-viking-landers-discovery-120412.html
