@cicerone imposter,
I think the scientists involved here can recognize certain factors that make it likely they are correct. I am not trained in any of this, so I mostly wait for those who are to clarify the issues.

Yep, we’re seeing all the stuff needed, at least in the past, to breed a bunch of Martian life. Still noth'n.

I don’t think mars rovers make very good hunter-gatherers.

No sweat, Elon will check it out personally shortly. A bacteria or two ought to be easy, or at least a few diatoms.

@rosborne979,
Yep, Sometimes the machinry isnt built to do th job and mot of the time we blindly stumble on things that work it out.

It was just like the time that boat toed magnetometers(used to locate mines couldnt detect changes on the earths magnetic declination over great distances until they came out with the mega gaussian drivers to hunt for deep mines that they were getting huge mag interference signals that were actually caused not by mines, but by deep ocean magmas reaching a curie point wrt the planets magnetic field. Accidently the minesweepers discovered evidence for the Wegner Hypothesis called continntal drift.
Also like Penzias an Wilson having to cleam out the pigeon **** from their "space horn" and gaind some evidence of the Big Bang

@Leadfoot,
These rovers aren’t even looking for bacteria or diatoms, so unless something obvious like a fossil shell shows up in the camera view they aren’t going to find it.

@farmerman,
These rovers are good at what they are programmed to do, but for exploration nothing beats human boots on the ground.

@rosborne979,
Yeah, but all the excitement when they thought Rover caught the scent of a Martian fart was amusing.

@Leadfoot,
I think Methane on Mars is a thrilling discovery. I can’t wait to find out what is causing it.
