The search for extraterrestrial life -- on Mars, Jupiter's moon Europa, or
anywhere -- is not likely to be an easy chore. It's a pretty safe bet that
there won't be any critters, or even fossils, lying around on the surface.

Earth's moon might be a biological preserve, a celestial cemetery where
protolife or fossil extremophiles are awaiting discovery in volcanic
shadowed sites.

Now in its Extended Mission, Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) is into its second
Mars year of systematic observations of the red planet. With the Extended
Mission slated to run through April 2002, the Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) is
being used, among other things, to look for changes that have occurred in
the past martian year.
