Not sure why we're putting all this effort into looking for evidence of extinct life on Mars. What's the point?

It would make a lot more sense to look for resources which would ease the task of colonization.

The last thing we want to do is find life. That would forever render the planet untouchable.

Evidence of past life can be more easily found by men on foot.

I think a lot of people would like to find life on MARs. The easiest way to do that is to put people there and then the question is answerable in the affirmative and we can move on to other questions.

Are you really gonna find life in a crater made by a whopping big rock impacting at 10,000mph causing the whole mess to heat up to a couple of million degrees?
Crap, you would come closer to finding life in an autoclave
