This isn't really directed at you, but people get confused about this a lot.

Organic is just a term used to describe compounds that have carbon-based structures.

A compound being "organic" doesn't mean it came from an organism, or that there is any indication of life whatsoever.

I realize that, but what I was considering the armadillo would be a definitive representation of life whereas an organic compound may or may not represent life. The guy I quoted is right, organic compounds do not necessarily mean life in and of itself is present. However he equated that with a dead armadillo which would represent life whether dead or alive.

Well, even if it's not life it could be a sign that there are various elements and compounds on or near the surface that humans could possibly take advantage of if we ever get off of our butts and solve our more pressing problems. Terraforming or oxygen extraction is what I have in mind but they could be materials that we could use for construction of dwellings so we don't have to pack too many inflatable domes. biggrin.gif

That'll be the day... we don't have the technology to do that yet frown.gif. I wonder if I'll be alive to see it happen? (I'm 22 atm)
