Ever since Mars was first observed through a telescope in the 17th century, there has been rampant speculation that the mysterious Red Planet could harbor life. Once the stuff of sci-fi stories, Mars exploration is now a reality, and scientists theorize that there could indeed have once been primitive life on Mars, and even that Martian microbes might have even seeded the early Earth. Further out on the fringe are those wacky conspiracy theorists, some of whom believe that everything from snakes to primates to child slaves to entire civilizations now live or once lived on Mars and that NASA is covering it up. On episode 46, Tom and Jenny delve into the fascinating world of life on Mars, from the earliest speculations to the most recent scientific discoveries to the craziest conspiracies. Fire up your Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator and listen in as 13 O’Clock goes searching for Martians.
