Who gets to find out about extraterrestrial life first?

We have recently found out that there is some kind of brine flowing on Mars’ surface during spring. It evaporates quickly, and leaves clear evidence of its presence through the clearly observable muddy skids, which NASA actually showed in their last conference.

I was personally taken away with the announcement, as I’m sure most of my fellow space exploration buffs were, especially after years of being told that Mars is a barren, inhospitable world, that may have  millions if not billions of years been warm enough to support some kind of liquid water, and possibly life.

I barely came out of my state of awe, when I stumbled on this interesting piece of news about Mr. Ridley Scott, who, as far as I remember, is a movie director. Mr. Scott is a good movie producer, but he is not a scientist and he does not work for NASA, at least not according to his IMDB profile.

Mr. Scott says that he had been aware of NASA’s discoveries for a few months, and this is information was given to him by his collaborators from NASA who helped him make his newest movie – “The Martian”.

I don’t see any problem is Mr. Scott’s statements, but there is something definitely disturbing about NASA’ reaction, which as far as I am aware, is inexistent. I think an organization such as NASA, whose vision is “to reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we do and learn will benefit all humankind”, might have a better policy on delivering such information.

They should take their mission motto more seriously because,  as I see things happening, we’ll find extraterrestrial life in a few years. And if they keep this up, it’s very likely that the news breaker will be Mr. James Cameron, right before the 2017 release date of the Avatar 2 movie.
