Is there life on Mars? What about the rivers that are said to be on the face of Mars?

I asked all the smart people in my lab and they all said "no life on Mars" except for one green-skinned guy with antennae for ears whose name is Michael Valentine.

There is no evidence for life on Mars.

There is evidence that there was once much more surface water on Mars than there is today (maybe even rivers).

Dr. Valentine, who enjoys being a stranger in a strange land, says to say "Hi! Nanu nanu! Live long and prosper."
