Is there life on Mars?

No, not the Bowie classic but perhaps even sweeter music to our ears. NASA are making a special announcement tomorrow with the strap line "Mars Mystery Solved" - speculation is rife but the favourite hypothesis is that they're going to announce the discovery of liquid water. However there is a (remote) possibility that they may announce some kind of discovery of life, or more probably past life on the red planet, that would be truly spectacular, something that would probably represent the biggest scientific discovery ever. It will air live from Washington at 11:30 a.m. EDT or 4:30 p.m. here in the UK.
