I read a story about the Mars rover Curiosity finding something "for the history books" on its expedition. What do you guys think it is? Proof of life on Mars? Something else?
Say for instance if Curiosity found proof of life on Mars at one time, what impact do you think it would have on us? I think it would throw our whole understanding of everything into the blender. Religions would be in turmoil, and a lot of people would be questioning things that they had previously had no reason to.
I am excited to hear what they have to say!
I am thinking they found some form of life like a bacteria or something. I don't understand why life on Mars would impact religions. Humans just can't be the only "intelligent" life form in the universe. At least I hope not.
Some people are indoctrinated by their religion that they would not think outside the box. So, when and if it is proven scientifically all hail breaks loose.. brace yourself! This maybe the greatest change in our history.. forever.
That is so true Ubetcha. Most people are so set in their beliefs even scientific facts won't change their thinking.
I love the phrase "Its good to have an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out!"
The exploration of space is fascinating to me. I am a "backyard astronomer". In fact, this morning while we waited for the school bus, I was able to show my 5 and 8 year old girls the Space Station flying overhead. Spending time watching a meteor shower or just looking up at the stars with them is a lot of fun.
There is a website called skyandtelescope.com that has a list of weekly sky events. You can also find out when the ISS will fly over your house.
I love it when I am outside and catch the ISS flying over. You can tell it is that because it is so friggin' bright, like a big bright star that is moving quickly in one direction on a straight arc.
Typical satellites are much dimmer but still cool to look at as well. My mom is buying my oldest kid a telescope for Christmas. I can't wait to take her out and use that.
COOL !! -
There are so many different kinds of telescopes these days. Computerized ones are neat and very reasonably priced. You just punch in coordinates or object names and it will find and track them for you.
Most people would be surprised at how much more you can see using a simple pair of binoculars.
Well here is a link for the announcement NASA made today.
So they are still not positive or maybe just not saying
I was thinking this might be a lot of hype for nothing when I first heard about it. We'll see.
Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of the things, and no good thing ever dies.
I believe they found water, yes?
It is the same thing they found on Mercury. Interesting that the building blocks of life are found throughout the universe. I was told this back in 5th grade, and it is amazing that people get so shocked about it sometimes.
I was hoping they found a caterpillar or something there.
Or maybe a real Martian? lol
The link I read said organic compounds but they were not specific. But has NASA or the gov't for that matter ever been specific on controversial issues
Wouldn't it be fun to know there were Martians.
Yes, it would. I really want to see proof of existing life on other celestial bodies before I kick the bucket.
There is so much out there that it astounds me how much we don't know.
We didn't know that WE are the MARTIANs..?? bwa-hahah!
Anyways, I kind of like the idea on the movie, Knowing (2009) Starring: Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne
A teacher (Cage) opens a time capsule that has been dug up at his son's elementary school; in it are some chilling predictions -- some that have already occurred and others that are about to -- that lead him to believe his family plays a role in the events that are about to unfold.
That was the biggest anti-climax ever. They will never let the guy who came out and blabbed about the history books speak to the media ever again.

I liked that movie too Ubetcha. How Cage figured out all the past and up-coming tragedies and tried to make a difference and in the end it was just his son that could save the future of mankind.
Agreed on your views, Luckywalker. It was an eerie movie but made sense to me!
