It was said at the end of episode 93 that congress has instructed NASA scientists not to say that they are looking for signs of life on Mars. Why?

Because spending billions of dollars to look for aliens is a really quick way to get your funding cut by congress.

If you look for something that you know you probably will not find, you are setting yourself up to be a failure. If you make yourself a goal that you know you can achieve (i.e. look for the stuff you already know is there, like water) then you are setting yourself up for success.

Look at our fantastic success rate congress!
