Mars rover targets Jerezo crater

NASA is sending a rover to mars in 2020 and is targeting the Jerezo crater as a landing spot due to the belief that the 50km wide crater could hold secrets to past/current life on mars. NASA believes 3.9 billion years ago, the environment could have supported microbes because the area was much warmer and wetter back then. Satellite images show that a river may have once cut through its rim and formed a big lake. Do you think there was past or current life on mars? What would the outcome be of potentially discovering life on another planet, even if it is just small microbes.

I think there was past life on mars as on the northern and southern hemispheres of mars there is ice on those surfaces. If there was a single microbe on mars I think that one singular microbe would mean that life is sustainable on mars as any of signs of life mean that it is sustainable for us as well. I don't think there is any life currently on mars but we have the potential to call mars a second home because I personally think that since there is ice on mars, there was water on mars. If we were to research further into mars we may find water beneath the surface and can begin colonizing mars. Also if our technology advances we could create water on mars and also begin colonizing mars without using the ice caps as water supplies.
