If you are really interested, you can go to ncbi site (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
and search pubmed for nannobacteria, nanobacteria, nanobes. You will get a
number of references about samples of rocks from Mars that showed some sort
of bacteria-like structures under transmission and scanning microscopes.
However, since most of the studies in this particular field lack appropriate
controls, it seems like it is just an attempt to take desired for a real.

I am myself quite optimistic about the possibility of other life forms to be
existent in the Solar system, but no evidence of any king of life on our
neighbor planets have been found so far.
