Australian dog proves Martian life

What's interesting is I couldn't find any American news sources that reported on this. Kind of makes me wonder what kind of vested interest the American media has in not letting the public know about this.

Did you not notice that this doesn't involve any actual science?

"And NASA scientists who examined the potato-sized meteorite discovery, called ALH84001, agree this may well be proof that life really did exist on Mars."

You wouldnt get a nasa statement if it was some kind of big government coverup imho

no, was kind of implied by vested intrest the news media had.

I cant think of another restriction on them besides the government that would cause them not to report something they deemed newsworthy :smile:

Maybe they don't want us to know that we spent billions of dollars to find out if life existed on mars, and then a fucking dog found out first.

This reminds me of the time that I discovered a lost alien civilization in Antarctica.

It works fine. Try again.

BTW, did it take you until today to realize that was in my signature?

Not if you consider the long term.  They'd get better ratings in the long run if they continue to cover the supposed search for Martian life, rather than the actual discovery of it.  BTW, I never said it was a government cover-up.  Maybe a media cover-up, but not a government one.

Heh Silver you just have more trust in the big media outlets cooperation (i guess collusion would be more fitting.....I love that word, collusion) than I do.

Either way though I totally support space exploration even if all this has happened.
The problem solving involoved has led to some really amazing discoveris and I'd much rather have my tax dollars going to that than to secure Haliburton some oil :smile:

It's being reported in all sorts of different news media in Australia, so it's clearly not some sort of "Weekly World News" article. There seems to be a good deal of scientific support for this, though there are also those in the scientific community who are naturally skeptical about it. And maybe I was too quick to jump on the fact that the American media hasn't picked this up yet. There may be a little lag time before they report on this.

It's supposed to open up a blank window, but I have no idea why it says that.

Has anyone else had trouble downloading the file??

Just because it gets reported doesn't mean that it means something.

I don't see any science here at all, or anything to report.
