I mean this is a good question. Does this affect the markets? Would there be mass hysteria? Say Beagle, or Spirit, or Opportunity digs in and sends back pictures of fossils buried beneath a sandy layer of rock? Before you laugh, this might happen in less than 7 months. If just ONE of those robots manages to land on Mars, we could get pictures of a fossil. The robots are certainly being sent to the bottom of a past body of water, and the rocks there will have fossils if there was life. NASA is supposedly really playing this down because, well, that's what NASA does. Ideas?
