Captain Rick doing some [un] common sense thinking … It is possible that Mars was once a thriving planet that grew too cold to sustain life. This excellent post by a fellow WordPresser presents interesting thinking concerning possible past life on Mars based on photos captured by the Martian rover.
I have long thought that as our sun cools, its outer planets grow cold and loose ability to support life. It is possible that before life on an outer planet becomes extinct, its inhabitants become capable of exploring a warmer planet closer to the sun and begin a migration process.
Perhaps past inhabitants of Mars became space pioneers and ventured to earth to begin new live. Perhaps one day soon earthlings will be able to travel to Mars and take a closer look at where their distant ancestors lived. Perhaps a long time from now earthlings will venture to Venus as it cools and earth grows too cold to support life.
Thinking is a wonderful gift we should all exercise more often.

We can all probably agree that Mars is one of the most fascinating planets –besides Earth– in our solar system. We have learned so much about the red planet that we changed our opinion about everything we previously thought about Mars. Researchers finally know that Mars wasn’t always a desolate and inhospitable place. In fact, millions of years ago, the red planet may have been eerily similar to Earth.
In recent years, scientists have found out that Mars has liquid water flowing on its surface, a discovery that drastically changed everything we ever knew about Mars. The fact that NASA knows there is water on Mars means that they can pick out the best places to search for primitive life. If there is water, then perhaps there might be life on Mars.
But not only did we find out that Mars has liquid water, NASA…
