PROVIDES that life on Mars could emerge in 20 years, although aliens may find us first, an expert says.
According to astrophysicist Sarah Cruddas, decades of unmanned probe exploration of the Red Planet could be successful.
Scientists has been revealed that organic molecules found on Mars are “suitable for early life,” a tantalizing clue in the hunt for alien life in our Solar System.
Nasa believe that Mars is ancient similar to Earth and was once much “wetter and warmer”.
“When you look at the numbers, it’s likely that we’re not alone in the universe,” Cruddas told the Daily Star on Sunday.
“We know Mars was warmer and wetter, so there were conditions for microbial life, which are single-celled organisms. We still can’t prove it.
“Whether it is microbial life or something inexplicable remains to be seen.
But once we have the answer, we can extrapolate that to calculate how much life might really be out there. “
But the 38-year-old scientist said we should also prepare for an alien visit.
“We should not rule out that alien life will detect us first. It could have spotted us.
“Alien civilizations may be much more advanced than we are, which is why it’s likely they’ll find us before we find them.”

The rover, nicknamed Percy, is drilling into the planet’s surface to collect core samples and store them in titanium tubes.
The tubes will then be set aside until 2028, when a recovery craft is planned to return them to Earth.
