Interviewer:Obligatory Mars-related question. Is there life on Mars?
Jared:Well, certainly there is life on Mars, but you have to consider what you mean by 'life'. In universal terms everything is life, from this table to the blood in your body, everything is as important as the next. So the answer is yes. Life in terms of science-fiction life? Probably not. But where you find ice, and rock and activity, there will be something happening, somewhere. On what level who knows.
Shannon:If you have two hours he can blow your mind with the theory, I heard it the other night.
Jared:It's interesting that there are these huge discoveries where we just go – "oh". You know, there is water on the moon, "oh, ok". In the form of ice. On Mars they think there is a sheet of ice that covers huge sections of the surface. If you told someone that 50 years ago they wouldn't believe you. Now it's like, "that's great, is the new iPhone out?", you know? But I'm using BlackBerry. Thanks for your time
