Interview with NASA Ames astrobiologist David Des Marais
"One question has fascinated humans since, well, the beginning of time: Are we alone in the universe? So far, despite our constant scanning of the heavens for proof, the answer seems to be a resounding yes. But that hasn’t stopped us from pouring billions into an upcoming mission to Mars to see if it does, or could have sustained life."
"Now that we know there’s flowing water on Mars and that it once had an Earth-y atmosphere that might’ve allowed humans to crash there, NASA astrobiologist David Des Marais told Quartz there’s actually a really important reason we need to visit the red planet."
