Mars Mystery by Graham Hancock chronicles the historical studies conducted by many scientists and researchers about the possibility that life existed on the planet Mars. his issue has long been in great discussion and debate among scientists and scholars, and two sides are formed based on this issue: one side stating that life in Mars is possible, although speculations that the planet had an existing form of civilization (similar to us human beings) is not accepted. he other side speculates the possibility that there is both life and an existing civilization in Mars. he possibility that Mars is able to support human (or at least similar to the elements needed to support human living) life is the primary factor that scientists and scholars of astronomy are interested in. he possibility that Mars can be another "Earth planet" that cultivates human life can help explain why Earth came into existence,….
The following observations mentioned above were not merely established as speculations. These evidence are products of numerous space exploration sponsored and funded by the government in an effort to know more about Mars and other heavenly bodies which might pose potentials to cultivating human life. Of course, the space explorations are not primarily focused on the human cultivations aspect of a heavenly body; information is also needed for any danger that might happen to Earth (and human civilization) because of the spontaneous and often accidental explosions and collision activities of these heavenly bodies. According to Hancock, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration launched two probes in 1996. Called the Pathfinder, these probes aims to explore the planet in many ways possible, and this includes the obtaining specific and precise information about the biological, atmospheric, and geological foundations and composition of the planet. Hancock states that these studies are mainly de to a program that plans to "terraform" Mars, changing or conforming it to the Earth planet, which can be beneficial since there is the possibility that it can cultivate life on it. Prior to these two probes in 1996, similar space mission programs were sponsored by the U.S.S.R. In the 1960s, and these missions were followed by the U.S. afterwards, through its Mariner space program (Portree Microsoft Encarta 2002).
These space probes and explorations about Mars brought about numerous information and even pictures of the planet's surface. However, it is difficult to obtain quality shots of the planet's surface because of its distance from the Earth, and accuracy and precision was sacrificed when information brought by these probes came into existence and knowledge of scientists and astronomers. One speculation that resulted from these studies and explorations is that aside from the possibility that Mars is capable of cultivating human life, there has been evidence supporting some scientists' claim that there existed a form of civilization in Mars. One evidence that somehow supports this claim are the pictures taken by the Viking showing the Cyadonia region of Mars, which illustrates and shows the features of a humanoid face (on the planet's surface). Some scientists even speculated further that some parts of the images shows the presence of 'pyramids' that are similar to Egypt's famous pyramid tombs. However, as the images became more clearer and precise due to increased technological advances, the images that were once thought of as 'humanoid faces' and 'pyramids' are just hills along the terranous plains of Mars (Schaefer Microsoft Encarta 2002). Thus, any speculations that there is an existing civilization in Mars are still unfounded until now.

ME-B or the Opportunity
On June 10 and July 3, 2003, NASA launched the Mars Exploration overs (ME) to Mars in order to search for answers regarding the history of water on the planet. The two rovers that were launched were designated as ME -- A and ME-B, Spirit and Opportunity respectively, and landed on Mars on January 3 and January 24, 2004, respectively. This Mars Exploration over mission has been designed to provide long-term information to Earth through robotic exploration of Mars. Chief among the mission's scientific goals "is to search for and characterize a wide range of rocks and soils that hold clues to past water activity on Mars" (Summary, n.d.). As of 2010, the ME-B, or Opportunity, is the only active rover on Mars as ME-A, or the Spirit, ceased communications in 2010 after becoming immobile in 2009.

The existence of life on Mars has been a topic that has continuously fascinated mankind. Mars is the planet that is closest to Earth and the only planet in the Solar System where the hypothesis of existence of life can actually be debated. All the other planets are much too hot or cold for life to be even discussed. As a consequence, a lot of research about Mars has been directed towards identifying potential traces of life, in the present or from the past, as well as analyzing the existing conditions that could make the planet habitable.
From the introductory part of this paper, there needs to be a clear understanding about the fact that life on Mars does not….

The discovery of frozen carbon dioxide remaining on the surface of Mars is between 100 to 1000 millibars. With this in mind, increasing the atmospheric pressure and also the temperature on the planet is just a matter of warming the poles of Mars to the point where they can sublimate to the planet's atmosphere. By the fact that carbon dioxide is a green house gas, it will retain most of the sun's heat leading to melting of more carbon dioxide of the regolith of the planet. This will in turn result to trapping of more heat leading to further degassing.
One of the key ways of stabilizing the atmosphere of Mars is through activation of the atmosphere (Shankel, 2011). It is a fact that water usually promotes ecopoiesis through providing a crucial element for life, as well as stabilizing the climate. Water usually retains heat and, also reduces swings in….

"Now I'd like you to exercise, Meretzky. Is there anything I can do to help?"

"Certainly. What sort of playlist are you in the mood for?"
The instrumental opening of "The Final Countdown" by Europe began to play and Meretzky smiled. Most people did when they realized a computer could comprehend your own personal taste in irony. Meretzky settled in to doing the accelerated exercise routine for the next hour, while the ironic spaceflight music continued: a heavy amount of Bruno Mars, Sarah Brightman singing "I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper," Zager and Evans singing "In The Year 2525."
About halfway through the exercise routine Meretzky called out. "Iris, kill the music."

This is followed up by the information that life comes to earth and it occurs through means of a process of development or through means of seeding from another planet or some other element of source. Then the rocks from Earth are considered to blown out again by means of asteroids and those rocks reach Mars and at the same time, life is being destroyed here by the process of bombardments. Then again life would tend to come back to the Earth from the Mars through the same process of bombardment. (Science Conjecture: Life on Mars) Well the concept itself is very romantic, but the statistical chances of this sort of events taking place are one in a million or less. Yet, the idea continues as Mars is tied up with our imagination.

These include Omni, CCSDS, Hi-DSN and SpaceVPN. OMNI and CCDS will be briefly considered, with the focus on CCSDS, as this architecture has been shown to be the most appropriate for satellite communication with Mars.
Omni or the Operating Missions as Nodes on the Internet (OMNI) is an architecture proposed by NASA to provide the most simple and most effective infrastructure for space missions. Central to this architecture is the aim of integrating earth-based networks to space networks -- thereby being cost-effective and relatively easy to implement. This system also provides access to on-board spacecraft equipment by making use of standard remote access protocols (Tahboub and Khan). In other words, this architecture is particularly useful in that it makes use of standard Internet technologies.

Still, "America plans to spend money to help prepare for this grand project," in the future, the only question is how much and how fast, continued the Russian newspaper in 2001.
Now, while such collaboration bodes well for diplomacy, it also acts as a deflating influence in terms of competition between nations -- the less necessary Mars flights are for American or Russian national security and reputation, the less apt politicians are to fund such efforts in financially strapped times.

However, this cannot be considered to be detrimental for those reading the document, given the fact that such assumptions are responsible for given birth to the space era.
The text mainly focuses on the Noachian, Hesperian, and Amazonian periods in the geological formation of Mars, providing more information on the more recent eras. While the geological record can offer more data on the recent periods, this information is also limited due to the fact that Mars's geological activity has been slowed down with time, to the point where the planet displays little surface action.
Most of the latest geological activity on Mars can apparently be found in the Tharsis and Elysium sectors of the planet. This factor is detrimental for the overall article, as even though it can provide significant information regarding the recent years in the geological evolution of Mars, the fact that the planet's surface did not experience notable changes….
Many experts suspect that oceans flooded some regions and that rivers coursed through others. All of which supports the notion that life may once have flourished on the ed Planet (Cowen, 2002)."
The question is no longer whether or not oceans existed on Mars, but is now, where have they gone? There are several theories about what happened to the oceans including the possibility that they have gone underground or over a long period evaporated into the atmosphere.
The final piece of evidence regarding the existence of past oceans on Mars can be found in a study that reported an area near the northern plains indicating sediment that had to be caused by water. Scientists liken it to a bathtub ring in explaining how it points to a large standing body of water, most likely an ocean, was there at one time (Cowen, 2002).
