I know there's already the ongoing Mars thread, but I think this one is just off enough to warrant its own thread. Like a big portion of the world, I've been really interested in the whole Mars phenomenon. Like most kids, I used to dream of going into space. The constant search for traces of water have made me think over the last week: What if the Mars rovers came across evidence that life did exist on Mars? How would the world react to it, and better yet, would that knowledge even be made public or would the US shy away from announcing the discovery for fear of panic? That's a heady question. Think about it and let's discuss.
