NASA has sent bacteria to Mars - report

A new report says:
The US space agency [NASA] believes the two rover spacecraft scuttling across the red planet are carrying bacteria from Earth ... The craft, Spirit and Opportunity, landed on Mars last year. One key task was to look for signs of life: now it seems that if there are any organisms, it is man who has put them there. If proved, the contamination would raise concerns at possible breaches of a UN treaty to stop other planets being polluted from Earth.
