    Thanks for the post !

    I like the assumption:



    Shouldn't that be all "known" organics ? Or "all organics that developed on earth" produce methane ?

    We're talking about different test labs here folks... our earth-bound rules may not apply. Expect the unexpected. Time to think outside the bun !

    To be a bit more serious...

    Currently we can only look for life as we know it. How can we know what byproducts to look for in an organism previously unknown to us? How can we differentiate between the byproducts of some unknown and hypothetical organism and geologic processes?

    We don't and we can't.

    This methane finding is extremely interesting but it should be remembered that methane can also be produced by volcanic activity. Mars has been thought to be dead volcanically, but that idea will certainly be revisited with these findings.
