Totally agree with Mark's quote below about Panspermia. As to reverse contamination-- studies so far suggest launching and landing temperatures are sufficiently low that neither process sterilizes the cargo: Mars to Earth or Earth to Mars transport.

enough, so it seems sensible to assume it all started right here...?
in a galaxy not so very far away..
