Okay. I can go with amoeba and the like that don't really think like mammals. What kind of temperature does an amoeba need to survive? That is a question I would ask myself. Even if it wasn't "intelligent" life you still have to have liveable conditions. Although...I partially take that back. Some microscopic life can survive under severe conditions. So yeah, I can go with micro life on Mars.
Yes it is surprising the level of outcry that comes when we consider shrinking our space activity. I debated partially about space and NASA's shuttle last school year.
