    That is pretty cool. This should not affect the possibility of life, should it?

    Microbial life is supposed to persist far under the Earth's surface, even after terran impacts. Perhaps the same could be true on our neighbor. :-D

    True. :? The article puts a date of more or less 4 BYA on the impact, which would predate life anyway, assuming it formed more or less the same time as on Earth. Presumably Mars also formed 4.5 BYA. Still, imagine a "hole" that spans 40% of the Martian surface! That is pretty devastating.

    Do you know about mars wars?
    Of curse you do not ... and the ones that live on mars ?
    Not you green little martians , you potato form of life that you are full of hidrogen and oxygen , in your mind life is only based on your structure , and you do not see that life that form of life that is not similar to you.
    There is life on Mars more advanced the life on Earth ... and sadly you will not live long too see that my words are true.

    In 1944, this creature rose from the swamp, with tremendous strength and some dormant memories that for example allowed him to speak English, but not knowing what he was, and not remembering Cyrus Gold or his fate. Wandering throughout the swamp, he encountered two escaped criminals, killed them, and took their clothes. When they asked him his name, he simply muttered that he had been born on Monday. Reminded of an old nursery rhyme about a man born on Monday, the thugs named the creature "Solomon Grundy".

    You have two choices. I don't care which one you take.
