I like how they specifically state the transmission was received at earth it really shows how much they want this to be documented and recorded for much later use

I heard they found microbial life living on the outside windows of the space station. if that's true. why wouldn't there be life on mars???

Michael Gembarski first sorry for being late. Second you can't say there is no life on mars. And third but the microbial life on the windows is because they were probably on the spaceship when it launched, you see there is a law wich prohibits sending life in form of bacteria to another planet or moon but a space station stays in orbit around earth meaning the bacteria can't go to the moon for example because there is no atmosphere. Please feel free to correct me on things i am wrong about some things and if i spelled something wrong.

For the terraforming of Mars,not only need genetically modified seeds,also insects and birds. Without them, it will be a complete failure.
