Life on Mars?

The recent announcement of methane plumes on Mars makes me more hopeful that life will soon be discovered on our red neighbor. But, there are perfectly fine non-biological explanations. Simpler chemical reactions explain the data just as well, and do not involve adding biology into the mix, so Occam’s razor trims away the biological hypothesis. Scientists should investigate further anyway.

No change to the population estimate.
