Slashdot has this article about Martian crust having residual magnetism that seems to suggest that Mars had some tectonic activity/significant magnetism in distant past, making it even more Earth-like at least during some part of its history. As usual, the comments on the article are much more interesting than the article itself. Sample this:

Someone commented, with a title "Aliens?"
Seeing as how we do not behave exactly like every other animal, would there be a way that we could have come from Mars? Perhaps Adam and Eve were real and the first couple to come.

to which someone else replied:

Nah. Eve was faking it.

Heh! :)
