If there's intelligent aliens out there (probability says yes), they certainly aren't on Mars or anywhere in the solar system.
So far Mars has yet to reveal anything about whether there was a second life distinct from Earth, but it is probably unlikely. As for life elsewhere, how can anybody really know, the closest that we will all know is the telescope being currently prep for launch, even that is still a form of time travel, without knowing in actual live event locally.

^ I think one needs to differentiate between "life" and "intelligent life" here.
Given what I know, I find it possible that there was life on Mars, or maybe even is on Venus.
Micro-organisms.
A much more interesting topic than sketchy military airplane footage.

i would like to see what kind of life there is at Europa.

i am believer in life at our solar system , not intelligent though.

Personally, and no offense meant, but I think this thread is comical.

Guys are up in space, looking for extra terrestrial life, traces in the sand, etc.

But we already know of one form at least of extra terrestrial life, who has gone so far as to introduce himself, saying in effect "Hi Folks, I'm here too and I made this place for you guys. I've even written you a book."

The modern reaction to that has been primarily "No, you're not there under any circumstances whatsoever, and no you didn't make anything, so shut up and go away!"

I must have missed that one... before I was born perhaps.

Just a friendly reminder of the slippery slope leading to rabbit holes...

Superstition ain't the way
While it certainly still exists in social circles (and it sucks!) aren't we glad that rumour and hearsay are at least inadmissible in court? It wasn't very long ago that thousands were burned at the stake and worse just because of gossip and rumor. I fact there are STILL places in the world where alleging witchcraft leads to a death sentence, STILL Flat Earthers, STILL belief in Angels and Demons, and visiting aliens with anal fixations who apparently understand FTL Interstellar Travel but are fascinated with cow guts etc etc etc. C'mon guys.

Cow guts may be a delicacy on Uranus...
