Life found on mars

Seen these photos this morning on line . Looks like they have found life on Mars in the way of some mushrooms . As you can see in one photo they are definitely growing as you can see the difference over a couple of days
Cool as in my books

Mars Life? Fungi-like Growth

May 6, 2021 by Brian Wang
There appears to be are images that researchers claim is life on Mars. Images taken by NASA’s Opportunity and Curiosity rovers as well as the agency’s HiRISE high-resolution camera attached to the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter look a lot like Fungi on Earth. Fungi can live in extreme radiation. The researchers cannot completely rule out minerals, weathering, and unknown geological forces that are unique to Mars and unknown and alien to Earth. However, if they saw this on Earth they would definitively call it Fungi. A lot of follow-up work will be done to confirm what could be a historic discovery.
Total conclusive proof will require a sample return mission or sending some ultra-specialized gear to Mars.
UPDATE – It is likely a false claim. NASA did not have a press conference to announce it, the journal where it is published will publish almost anything.
Above – Photographed by Opportunity. Martian specimens approximately 3-8 mm in size resembling Puffballs (Basidiomycota), some with stalks or shedding white spore-like material (leprose).

Hey,

With water bears surviving all the mass extiction events, I'd put money on them being earths first intersolar and interstellar travelers if any left orbit with the impact fragments.

Those are the same berry like nodules discovered years ago by the early rovers. Not life forms, but created by a natural geological process.
