Little expecting Wednesday's announcement from NASA that it had found evidence in a meteorite that life once existed on Mars, bookmaker William Hill gave odds of 10-to-one on the bet placed on August 21, 1995.
"I'll spend my winnings on a fantastic holiday, but I won't be going quite as far as Mars," winner Steve Upton [said].
William Hill earlier said it had cut its odds on the discovery within a year of intelligent alien life to 25-to-one from 500-to-one.
