NASA research teams of scientists at Johnson Space Center began to look for life as well. NASA began to send robots and Satellites to Mars. Unfortunately, they found nothing or lost contact with the robots or Satellites in the process. During the year of 1999 NASA sent up two rockets toward Mars and both were failures. Due to the failures, time has been given for scientists to blueprint a credible and step-by-step search for life on the Red Planet.
Many scientists believe water did existed on the planet because three NASA rovers found rocks with appearance of channels, streams and even oceans spotted by orbiting satellites. A question was brought up to Richard Quinn, a SETI Institute researcher with Ames' Planetary Systems Branch, if Mars was a habitable environment? "Based on what we know about life in extreme environments, interpretations of mission results indicate that we are currently exploring habitable ancient environments on Mars, and I believe that these are solid interpretation...The question is about preservation potential of bio signature rather than intrinsic habitability of the ancient environment." (Quinn, The Daily Galaxy) Studies shows that extraterrestrial life can come from dying stars. Dying stars can support planets with life.
Mars. It’s where the most technologically advanced rover ever built is right now. The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) is a specifically designed mission which allows scientist to study back on Earth to study Mars for any condition where past or present life may be found on the desolate planet. To conduct this mission on the planet itself, they use Curiosity, a high tech rover. In this paper, you will learn about the specifications of the rover, pre-launch preparations, the flight to Mars, the landing, and the types of experiments Curiosity is conducting on Mars.
Scientists believe that the earth’s gravity caught some of the debris and pulled it into the earth. Scientist Digregorio, Barry E (B4) stated that inside the debris of falling rock, were microorganisms. He notes that the microorganisms may have been the very start of life, as human civilization knows it. There is no way to prove his theory true, but it is a strong possibility. Similarities in planets led scientists to believe there is a common bond between Venus, Earth, and Mars.
Jake Huffman 4/30/14 Pledged Summary on The Hunt for Life on Mars In The Hunt for Life on Mars the author, Donald Goldsmith, provides a very in depth look into the extensive search for life on the planet Mars. He gives us details of the history of exploring mars, future endeavors, and discoveries that have been made in this enormous, yet exciting task. He spends most of the book discussing a rock, ALH 84001, that is believed to be from Mars and contains evidence that has led scientists to believe that at one point there was life and could still be life hiding somewhere on the red planet. While Donald Goldsmith is not a scientist by any means, he has done considerable research on signs of life in the cosmos and has interviewed several scientists and experts while writing this book. He has also written several other scientific books on life in space and beginning of life in the cosmos.
Upload of conscience considered but not followed after the protest of Human Rights organizations. 2103 AD The first permanent outpost formally formed on Mars (Sol IV). 2416 AD Human prospectors looking for minerals for asteroid mining discover a new element in the asteroid belt. Scientists rush to investigate the new element and name it element zero. 2522 AD Members of the revived club “Pluto is a Planet” try to establish a base there and discover that Pluto’s satellite is a station of alien construction quickly classified Sol IX-B.

The radiation Jupiter produces made it hard for Galileo to come close to the inner moon and scientist thought it would be best to save that for last. The successful flybys led to the discovery of erupting fountains of lava on Io. The next mission was titled Galileo Millennium Mission which lasted till 2001.
Many answers have been suggested but one answer stands out from the rest, Mars. Nowadays humans view Mars as the next frontier, apparently forgetting that Mars is an eight-month trip, each way. What people don’t realize is how good we have it here on earth; water, all the fossil fuels we need, and a great atmosphere all surround us. Although human travel to Mars may be the American dream, facts show that at this time, the trip is not in our country’s best interest. NASA has sent humans into orbit, onto the moon, and most recently sent robots to Mars, so if anyone is going to send humans to Mars it will obviously be NASA.
These three main space rocks aren’t just anything floating in space. Comets may seem unusual, but are made from things that are found on Earth and meteors may also have contributed to the formation of Earth since they contain rocks. That’s why meteors and comets could contain the hidden meaning to the creation of our universe and planet. Comets, meteors, and asteroids are very interesting rocks to have in our solar system that we are able to know about. The wonders of these space rocks are yet to be completely discovered and hopefully we will get to see these fascinating rocks some time in our lives.
Extraterrestrial life is defined as life that does not originate from Earth. With the fascination of aliens among human, many became theorist. They believe that extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago sharing their expertise with early civilizations which forever changed the course of human history (Ancient Aliens). An example of this is Stone-hedge. How exactly did human place these heavy giant rocks on top of each other without any heavy machinery or tools.
