FLASHBACK - VIKING, LIFE ON MARS, AND DR. GILBERT LEVIN

The gist of the story is that Curiosity has been detecting sudden bursts of methane erupting from small areas on the surface of Mars. These methane bursts are not explainable by geological processes, which tend to result in methane flowing steadily from large areas. But colonies of bacteria just under the surface would generate methane, which would accumulate until there was enough pressure for a "burp" to pop up through the overhead dust. Curiosity is going to perform more tests to try to confirm biological activity, and when they do, we can count on the present day NASA management to claim credit for what will truly be an Earth-shaking discovery.

Life was proven to exist on Mars back in 1976, during the Viking Missions, but for political reasons, ignored. Here is the story.
