The mystery of the farting Martians.


Scientists have recently verified sporadic methane plumes on Mars. Methane is usually created by living organisms or from gas leaking from coal deposits. Coal deposits are often created by fossils, so this increases the odds that there either is life on Mars now or there was in the past.

But a friendly word of advice. If a Martian asks you to pull his finger?

Don't.
