    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I'm particularly excited about the sulfate results...because so much of the material we are looking at is in sulfur rich caves where gypsum and other sulfate minerals play a huge role in the biology and the subsequent preservation of traces of that biology.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The best thing about these places is that large -- as in macroscopic -- buried fossilized material is usually weathering out of the outcrops. One can see them laying about and follow the fragments to the source. For microscopic fossils, of course, no clear obvious clues are usually present. The exception is large scale microbial mats like those that made stromatolites and algal travertiles and tufa.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“That kind of a no-doubt-about-it pond with minimal shallow excavation could be a goldmine of microfossil material! I'd want to sample its beautiful rims ... and do a small core down through the middle somewhere.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“On Earth, the bottoms of these cracks can house organisms in a much more pleasant environment than the surface at large. Obviously, if such communities thrive or thrived on Mars, some of the evidence may well be at the bottom of these cracks. We have much imaging evidence of these terrains on Mars for comparison to the similar terrains here on Earth, not just at the poles but many other high latitude and high altitude places.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The way communal insects behave with respect to each other produces very elaborate, complex behavior of the total, but the actual rules that any individual uses to relate to its fellows can be very simple. The critical thing is how does the swarm behave? Can we direct the individuals enough that the overall motion of the entire swarm is in the direction we want to proceed?”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The individual units are very cute and very adorable. But the function of them as an ensemble is where the real strategy lies.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“I want to try and get into those kinds of places. It's very important to make devices for life detection on Mars, for example. ... Any planet or moon with a solid surface will do.”
