Going to Marble Bar to search for Life on Mars - Malcolm Walter colloquium
Until about 10 years ago the palaeobiology of the earliest Earth was like studies of human evolution: a sparsely populated field characterised by minimal evidence and great public interest, a dangerous mix. A small number of practitioners dominated the field. That has changed. The field has been galvanised by the entry of numerous new players and the application of new techniques. Much of this has been caused by the exploration for life on Mars. The more we learn about Mars the more it seems reasonable to compare the early history of the two planets. However, much of the literature is arcane and some is polemical and must seem impenetrable to those not involved.
