Food for thought???
Could they still exist deeper below the surface??
I doubt it... too cold and dry... this could be something fossilised though... are we looking at the first direct evidence of life outside the Earth?
This picture is baffling as hell. I would love to hear some response from NASA about this. I do NOT believe that is a natural formation!?
It looks natural to me. It could just be an odd piece of the rock.
It could be a natural Martian????
Chris McKay, at Ames Research Center(Moffet Field, Ca USA), works with NASA and the National Science Foundation adn does research in Antarctica.
I remember Chris being interviewed and mentioning that they would pull up ice cores 2 million years old and finding frozen bacteria. They thawed them. The bacteria started moving around, still alive.
Scientists have pulled up rock cores from miles down in the Earth. They find live, anaerobic, rock eating bacteria.
There are bacteria that "breathe" iron.
Who knows what is on Mars, or where, or how far down or how cold.
I would think the further down you go the warmer it gets. Also,
what if there are undergroung caverns?
