Stop what you're doing, because ALIENS LIVE ON MARS. Maybe.
Evidence collected by Dr Joseph Levy, from the University of Texas Institute of Geophysics, and his team after analysing two massive craters on Mars seems to show that it could support life.
Calling the pot holes a 'good candidate site for evidence of past life,' the doc and his team reckon that the next thing we need to do is get a rover or an astronaut to investigate further.
Dr Levy believes that the areas, which are called the Hellas depression and the Galaxias Fossae depression, are prime real estate when it comes to the red planet.

NASA has found evidence of water on the planet, essential for life, which creates an even stronger case for the existence of life.
Dr Levy told news.co.au: "The key finding is that both depressions appear to be places where large amounts of subsurface ice were removed. The potential combination of heat, meltwater, volcanic gases and geological weathering products makes these kinds of depressions potential habitable zones for past Martian life."
Billionaire Elon Musk has said he would like to start sending people up to live on Mars, with the disclaimer that the first that fly out there are likely to die. Still, taking into account the state of the world right now, I'm keen to sign up. Come on, let's all go and fuck Mars up, too.
