    Thats not the point of Curiosity though. It was sent to test the rocks of a nearby mountain to see if life could have existed in the past.

    Because discovering life on another planet would change the human race forever in ways we can hardly imagine. To discover whether or not we really are as unique as some would have us think, and all for a Paltry sum of a few coins. Do we have the right to stifle the path of the human race so some people can have a few more dollars?

    guess what, it doesnt matter! we can determine if we could colonize mars regardless of whether or not life once existed there.

    lmao shears ^ you funny. and most certainly one of those ppl im talking about.

    stifle the human race? are you listening to yourself? cuz finding fossils of some micro organisms is gunna boost us so far?

    i really need to stop coming back in here.... my face and palm are gunna fuse together

    I really think the main reason for the mission is "Curiosity" itself. Plus it would be pretty cool if we found life.

    I think it's important to continue missions like this. I just wonder if there is a way to keep the price down? I'm not entirely sure why everything has to be so expensive (probably most of it goes into fuel and such). If there was a way to do this with 10% of the budget that would be way rad.
