I had the Science Channel on this morning and it got me to wondering: What if they found any type of life form on Mars?

I'm 100% in favor of the Space Program; always was. Although it saddens me a bit about all the space junk Earthlings have littered the galaxy with.

But ponder and postulate for a moment what our rights and responsibilities are, or should be, if life is discovered on Mars.

I think inobtrusive (or unobtrusive, if you prefer) observation would be an unavoidable temptation. But I suppose the definition of "inobtrusive/unobtrusive " would be hotly debated.

What do y'all think? What should Earthlings do if any type of living organism is discovered on Mars?

Same thing we do if we discover any less advanced, indigenous population- invade.

Nasa goes to great lengths not to interfere with what might be found someplace. The idea of the "hot torpedo" lander on Europa, has been debated forever. We might find life in an ocean under the ice, but to melt through it... at what price to that life. Nasa builds stuff in a "clean room" and wants no trace of human or earth contamination to go anywhere.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

We do what we've always done historically. We kill it and take all of its stuff. Smile

Sadly, although Cliff is correct about NASA, I believe that will be the prevailing attitude.

I'm certain we're talking about Earthlings of All world communities andnot just one.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Yes, I meant Earthlings, as in "all humans" when talking about what rights and responsibilities we have. But as far as who will do what: That could be as a planet (like any agreement could ever happen) or as individual countries.
