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.

While i do admit that this is seems to be a phenomenal project that could very well lead us onto paths of discovering life away from earth, part of me wishes that this much effort would be put into delving into the deepest depths of our oceans and making strides on discovering the seventy-some percent of water-mass that has yet to be discovered.
