momentous discovery

There is water on Mars. Wherever there is water on Earth, there is life. Mars is more similar than dissimilar to Earth. Mars used to be far more Earthlike than it is now. I am more confident every day that during my lifetime we will find evidence for life on Mars, whether it still exists there or not.

If there is, or was, life on Mars, there is life everywhere in the universe.

I have the same high hopes for discovery of evidence of life on Mars, even if no life still exists there. I'm also continuing to hope for the discovery of extraterrestrial ecosystems on Europa, but I realize that, for now, Mars remains much easier to study.

Don't forget Callisto, Ganymede, Enceladus and Titan, all of which show evidence of tremendous amounts of subsurface water and organic chemicals.
