Study: Earth microbes could survive Martian conditions

What would be the harm in letting a few of them loose…?

Evolution?

Yeah… you're probably right… the microbes would probably thrive and in a few short decades they would set their evil plans against us…

Captain Tom Coughlin 12-28-2012 04:13 PM

They are just waiting for their shot! Don't trust them!

To be serious, the point that they are making is a good one. While the search for life on Mars is still ongoing, contamination of Mars with Earthborn life makes that search far more problematic.

Certainly. I'm pretty sure there must be some form of organic contamination happening with all the stuff we've landed on the planet.
