Killing the Life We Seek
Mars Life Summary (Jan 10, 2007): Researchers hypothesize that Mars is home to microbe-like organisms that use a mixture of water and hydrogen peroxide as their internal fluid. Such life forms could explain the results of the Viking biology experiments -- before those experiments inadvertently killed the Martians.
My comment: isn't there a better way to test for life than heating something & cooking it????
Suppose some aliens came along & incinerated the Earth. "Oops! we were testing for organics. Doh!"
