A pair of NASA scientists told a group of space officials at a private meeting here Sunday that they have found strong evidence that life may exist today on Mars, hidden away in caves and sustained by pockets of water.

I bet those fuckers have weapons of mass destruction!

I really don't think it's appropriate to be making fun of a damnation of gay beavers living together on Mars... unless they do have WMDs.

Although gay beavers would explain a lot. It would explain why there are no trees on Mars, little or no running water, and, well, so very few martian beavers.

This means we've already broken the Prime Directive.

Ahem:

NASA STATEMENT ON FALSE CLAIM OF EVIDENCE OF LIFE ON MARS

News reports on February 16, 2005, that NASA scientists from Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., have found strong evidence that life may exist on Mars are incorrect.

NASA does not have any observational data from any current Mars missions that supports this claim. The work by the scientists mentioned in the reports cannot be used to directly infer anything about life on Mars, but may help formulate the strategy for how to search for martian life. Their research concerns extreme environments on Earth as analogs of possible environments on Mars. No research paper has been submitted by them to any scientific journal asserting martian life.


Sorry, no link, but sent to me by a friend at NASA.

So, not only is this sleeper cell of gay beavers concealing a WMD program in some obscure cave on Mars, but they're close enough to the Bush Administration to prompt an official cover-up!

Bloody typical.
