That conclusion—the first ever made about another celestial body—was announced today by the Curiosity rover team after a wildly successful drilling campaign into what may have once been the bed of a Martian lake.

Goes hand-in-hand with my episode “The Odds of Finding Life and Love”, which has a Carl Sagan cameo in it and explores the most modern exoplanet stats.
After you’ve aimed your mental radio telescopes at both of those, check out this SETI/TED collab video from Jill Tarter and learn more about how the odds of intelligent life are calculated.
