A Little Bit about Mission Design: 

A Little Bit about Mission Design Two General Laws Govern Mission Design: Objectives Exploration Political Planetary Defense Science Limitations Monetary Political Physics Technology Science Assume our Objective is the discovery of Life on Mars and that principle limitations are Scientific & Technology

Stuff We Know About Mars: 

Stuff We Know About Mars We Know: Conditions on early Mars are theorized to have been similar to that of Earth at the time of the genesis of life on Earth. *LONG* Periods when there were *LARGE* bodies of free flowing water on the Mars surface. Continue to be periods when the conditions are right for to produce water vapor if not liquid water. Large deposits of Subsurface and Polar Ice. Thin Atmosphere. We Conclude: Life was at least *possible* on Mars It is *still* possible that there is Life on Mars Therefore, We Assume: Life Does exist on Mars….we just haven’t found the right place or have had the right tool to find it.

Same Song, Second Verse (The Origin of Life on Earth/Mars): 

Same Song, Second Verse (The Origin of Life on Earth/Mars) Life is the Same Interchange of Planetary Materials Extra-solar system meteorites hitting both planets. Separate Genesis Life is Different Conditions on *both* planets acceptable for the initiation of Life, but a completely different genesis Leads to Further Refinement of our Objective: Is there Life? Does it look like us? Did we come from the same source or a separate Genesis?

The Complexity of Life on Mars: 

The Complexity of Life on Mars The Answer is.....Not Very! Current Scientific data shows a very stark environment devoid of all (VISIBLE) life. Provides a Key Scientific Limitation: Life on Mars is likely to be mono-cellular or not very complex multi-cellular organisms. Therefore, We Conclude: Looking for Microbes is the best way to find our Martians.

Direct and Indirect Detection of Martians: 

Direct and Indirect Detection of Martians Indirect – Looking for the *Signs* of Biology: Respiration Detection of Organic Material Direct – We see it, therefore it is: Cultivation Microscopy Direct Visual Florescent Stain Sublimation of Nucleic Acids Phospholipid Fatty Acid Analysis DNA Detection and Analysis Comparison of the Methods used for the Direct Detection of Martians in the Atacama (following)

Summary: 

Summary There are also Advantages to Each Method: Sensitivity Ease of Sample Preparation Have to Balance Advantages and Limitations in the selection of a specific method in order to meet your Objectives.

Proof of Martians on the Mars Surface: 

Proof of Martians on the Mars Surface The two recent Mars rovers have provided the proof of Martians on the Mars Surface!!!!
