There are daily stories about what the Mars rover is finding on the Red Planet. These stories are posted on conventional media. Although some of them may be conjecture or exaggeration, the point is that the info is imprinting the public about life on our closest neighbor–planet-wise.

Something is going on here. It is as if we are being prepared to learn that Mars had a civilization and maybe we come from there. There was also the recent fly-by of Mars by a comet that is supposed to be once in a million years.
Mars is called The Angry Red Planet. I think it is not so angry anymore. Now the Earth takes that label!
