Curiosity Finds No Methane in Atmosphere of Mars

 

NASA scientists reported Thursday that the Mars rover Curiosity has not found any clear signs of methane, a gas that on our planet is a strong indicator of life.

Even if they found hard evidence of extraterrestrial life, on mars or anywhere else, they wouldn't tell us anyway so might as well raise the doubts about mars ever having any.

On our planet. How do we know every planet is the same way?

Why would they hide that from us?  It's not like mass riots would break out or something.

Unless you're referring to the religious nuts who may get a bit restless.

I was thinking more in the lines that Mars has had some sort of planetary disaster in the past and whatever evidence they were (if there was any) just got lost.

^ You are correct.  An asteroid grazed the Mars atmosphere long ago, setting up a ripple effect, that ripped away part of atmosphere.

 

The gravity of Mars is too low to have recovered from the pass.

 

The survivors moved underground, and some were transported to Earth.

 

And no, NASA or the 'government' is not going to tell us anytime soon.

Even though the idea has fallen out of favor, I believe there was a planet where the asteroid belt is now, and when something happened to it, it affected Mars and probably earth as well.
