Mars strategy shift eyed as methane boosts odds for life

The Mars Science Laboratory rover may be retargeted to land near a methane vent on Mars to specifically seek direct evidence of current Martian life.

Yeah, that might be a good idea. Better have some committees look into it.

NASA has been trying to find evidence of life on Mars since the 70s. If they think that these vents are the best place to find it, and that the lander is suitable, they'll go there.
