    Martian atmosphere cannot support liquid water. It boils at some 10 degrees Celsius. Diurnal temperature variation is also too high - imagine lakes on Earth continuosly boiling and freezing every day - not a good place for life to flourish, eh?

    Hmm yeah. THat means that life would be differnt to our own, not necessarily non existent.
    On Earth we have life under the sea in volcanic activity areas, with huge pressure and lots of sulphur.
    We also have intelligent life in incredibly cold conditions on Earth. (Altho the life from Ya.kut.sk I have experience of is anything but intelligent, but I digress : D )

    You could even have life with silicon not carbon compounds.

    The boiling is due to low pressure, not extreme heat.

    There's also the possibility of life under ice, or underground.
    Mars was probably more like Earth in the past.
    Plus with it being billions of years old, life could have adapted to suit conditions.
