Just got back from Pavillion lake in cache creek. Did U know Pavillion lake is the ONLY lake in the world to have the same living microbies as mars? lol...

Yea here is the article...


Scientists at Simon Fraser University have discovered a unique life form growing in a British Columbia lake that has attracted a real-life X-Files investigative team from NASA.

The discovery may help NASA identify life on Mars and elsewhere in space. A paper by NASA and SFU scientists will be the cover story in Nature, one of the world's most prestigious scientific journals.
Five years ago Harry Bohm and Bernard Laval from the SFU underwater research lab went to survey Pavilion Lake, near Cache Creek.

There they found coral-like growths up to three meters long. Radioactive dating put the growths at about 11,000 years old, meaning they had begun to form shortly after glaciers receded from the area.
Bohm sent samples to NASA's Ames Research Lab in California, a world centre for research on the origin of life in the universe.

At NASA the delicate cone-shaped calcite structures piqued the curiosity of Chris McKay and Sherry Cady, a real-life Mulder and Scully team who travel the globe in search of extra-terrestrial life.

Cady and McKay visited Pavillion Lake and took more samples. The end result: a scientific paper co-authored by Bird, Laval, Cady, McKay, Bohm and several other researchers.

Cady claims the so-called microbialites may be a modern analog for a class of life-forms known as Epiphyton and Girvanella that appeared in great abundance in early Cambrian time 540 million years ago -- a time when most life first appeared on Earth.

Such discoveries are important as more and more robotic devices land on Mars to search for life. They help NASA exobiologists know what to look for on Mars or Europa (a moon of Jupiter), and other places in the solar system that may have once supported life.

For John Bird, who heads SFU's underwater lab, the lake is attractive for other reasons. "My own research is in underwater sensors and imaging," says Bird.

"We've developed a 3D sonar and Pavilion Lake is a great place to test it because there are interesting things to see and many questions that remain to be answered."

Questions such as: Why do the microbialites grow in that particular lake when similar B.C. lakes have none? How do they grow? Do the microbes form the feathery calcium aggregates?

Or does the rock crystallize first, thereby promoting the organic life? The SFU researchers hope these questions will attract further funding for more research.

There is also a move to have the lake become an environmentally protected zone.

anyways I ripped shit up in the hills with a budy. Almost got the 250 stuck in a mud pit, haha... A buddy crashed the 125 and now she's leaking fuel .... yea random thoughts for a random thread! lol

We have an Aprilia RSV 1000 mille at work, looks and sounds like an rc51 but the suspension is worth almost as much as a whole rc51
