Then they are going to tell us that there is actually teeming lifeforms on the Red planet real soon. Just watch. Too much Martian chronicles. There has to be life there, because once a month it's Mars this, Mars that. First bacteria. Now an underground lake.

If true, this is a very significant discovery and increases the chances that simple forms of life may have once existed, or even presently exist on Mars.

A NASA statement however, is a bit more cautious.

NASA Statement on Possible Subsurface Lake near Martian South Pole

''A new paper published in Science this week suggests that liquid water may be sitting under a layer of ice at Mars' south pole.''

Im not sure why they would be so cautious about the wording in this, considering what was revealed in the Dec 2017 NY Times article...in which they referred to spending taxpayer money to modify buildings, so they can store and research metals and other materials recovered from past UAPs, they even went on to mention the specific briefing report on those materials, which concludes that our military would not be able to defend against this technology!


So, this is basically an announcement that our govt HAS recovered metals and materials from an advanced civilization and that they have been to our planet...that is HUGE!

This thread is about a possible discovery of an underground lake on Mars. It is not about conspiracy theories.

Life on Mars isn't that improbable if you consider panspermia. But even if they find Mars bacteria and it originated on Earth, the diversion in evolution will still be interesting to study.

Wait... What do you mean by "First bacteria"? Bacteria on Mars? The article talks about bacteria found in a subsurface lake beneath the massive ice layer in Antarctica. It's uncertain if there are or ever have been any organisms on Mars.

Secondly, although the finding of a lake beneath the Martian ice cap is very interesting, it's not the first time water (possibly in the form of ice) beneath the surface. In 2002, the Mars Odyssey spacecraft detected an abundance of water ice beneath the surface at the south pole of Mars. The recent discovery might indeed point to water in a liquid state, but it's not yet 100% certain.

Because the referenced article was an official annoucement by NASA on nasa.gov ... the other was merely a story in the New York Times that carries no government endorsement.

Just a guess ... possibly he meant the fossil in the meteorite from Antartica from the 1990s.
