It is currently all over the news. Curiosity Rover has analyzed a sample of mudstone, aged about 3 billion years old.

My questions are:

  • Does ORGANIC refer to a Biological source?

  • If not, what could cause organic molecules? Are they naturally-occurring?

  • If yes, does it mean that there was life on Mars at any time in the past?
