An artist's drawing of one of NASA's Mars rover on the surface of Mars From Hanneke Weitering at Space.com:

In the film, six astronauts aboard the space station study a sample collected from Mars that could provide evidence for extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet. The crew determines that the sample contains a large, single-celled organism — the first example of life beyond Earth.

At first, the tiny alien seems cute and harmless as it sits inside a gloved containment box. When one of the astronauts puts his hands into the gloves and reaches in to touch the alien, its small, stringy, mushroom-like figure wiggles as if it’s being tickled. But the cuteness doesn’t last long. More.

No, It wouldn’t. Otherwise, there’d be no story. Happily…

Did Viking discover life on Mars forty years ago? Rob Sheldon, our favorite physics commentator (and physics colour commentator), has long believed that Viking did find such evidence on Mars.

    Showing once again that Hollywood script writers, who would vehemently deny any accusation of being an ID proponent, posit a creature which could only be a product of ID, and therefore have placed their faith in a theory of which they have no understanding whatsoever.

    Why else would it have the capacity to attack a creature that is entirely different from anything in its natural environment?
