"The water likely doesn't last long, but it may form annually. Many tiny patches of the ground on modern Mars may be capable of supporting life as we know it, if only very briefly, a new study suggests."

Q: How many times does the law of abiogenesis create life on Mars in view of this report? Did life get started on Mars, die out and then restart multiple times while water was on the surface for brief periods? In 1943, Scientific American published that there likely as vegetation growing on Mars too.

I read the abstract and didn't see a mention of life. Is it in the full report, or is the writer raising the point on his own? If it's the latter, it might be best to clarify in the story.
