Life on Mars?

I'm hard-pressed to explain why I'm as excited as I (actually) am about the possibility that there may be life on Mars (link via Boing Boing). I tend not to think too much about, um, y'know, aliens and space travel and whatnot (my bipolar relationship with all things SF being what it is). But, goddamn. Life on Mars? Even if they're just little bug things living below the surface of the planet, that's some thrilling shit.

"[T]hrilling shit" is right--those "little bug things" living on Mars may well be hostile, drooling aliens just waiting to stow away on a satellite and come to Earth so that they can eat me in my sleep. Good grief.
