In the next decade Mars will be visited by the most capable Rovers and instruments built to date. How will these missions find evidence of life on Mars and what does mean for us if there is no life detected. The robotic exploration of Mars and subsequent return of samples to earth will reveal a lot of information about our own origins whether or not life is discovered.
