    New analysis of 36-year-old data, resuscitated from printouts, shows NASA found life on Mars, an international team of mathematicians and scientists conclude in a paper published this week.

    Further, NASA doesn't need a human expedition to Mars to nail down the claim, neuropharmacologist and biologist Joseph Miller, with the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, told Discovery News.

    "The ultimate proof is to take a video of a Martian bacteria. They should send a microscope -- watch the bacteria move," Miller said.

    "On the basis of what we've done so far, I'd say I'm 99 percent sure there's life there," he added.

    "Found Life" Based on old data eh? Not proof at all.

    what's wrong with that? yes your not proving that there currently is life, but that there was life 36 years ago, it's not like the data changes over the years or something

    They studied data for "mathematical complexity" to see if it was more complex than what would be expected from purely geological processes... Since this method has not been calibrated for earth samples, it's hard to say for certain that something like this truely works.

    To say "I am 99% sure", you are really taking a gamble when it comes to such technology.

    Nothing to see here... yet. I am pretty skeptical altogether, though. Call me naive, but I don't think there is life on Mars. You are all free to hold your own opinions though.
