Soil on Mars Could Support Life

NASA scientists reported that Martian soil could support life. The preliminary analysis of the soil showed it has sufficient nutrients, such as magnesium, sodium, and potassium, which could support life. The soil was less acidic than expected. Scientists were surprised to learn the soil is far from toxic. 

Now that we know about Mars's fertility we can plan ahead. In the event we ruin the Earth there's always Mars to immigrate to. Maybe President Bush's Mars ambitions weren't so ridiculous. Regardless, it's just cool Mars's soil could support life.
