What happens if we find fossils on Mars?

    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?

    After robots these folks would be the first workers to go due to prior weightless environment working atmosphere, and breathing mediums.
