Question 49 of the Impossible Quiz Book is the second-to-last question of the Book's first Chapter. As Mars scrolls into view from below, a rather interesting question fades in right above of him: "Is there life on Mars?". To make things even more interesting, a 20-second bomb puts a limit to your thinking.

There are two possible scenarios you could get here, and they both involve answering this question in different ways. In the first one, the only interactable object on the screen will be the word "life" of the question; no part of Mars will be clickable. This is the easier variation, since all you have to is to click and hold the left mouse button while on the word "life" and drag it onto Mars. The question will then disappear, and a new message will appear on its place: "There is now!", before you're sent to the last question.

The harder scenario is the one that could doom your playthrough: the word "life" WON'T be clickable. Instead, several parts of Mars will be interactable, including his craters and some dry parts of its surface that will crack upon being clicked. In this case, you have to click on every possible part until you make a Phlovomite appear, holding a sign that says "Yes!". You'll then proceed.

In the latter variation, the clickable parts are really small, so it's important that you check everywhere or save your Fusestopper or your Skip specifically for this question. The Phlovomite will not always appear in the same spot: it could appear on the left side of the planet, or between either pair of craters, or even in the crater right next to Mars's left eye.

Either way, after you've found (or put) life in Mars, the screen will change as the music comes to a halt, for you have reached the final question of the Book's Chapter 1: Question 50!
Random This question contains varying parameters you need to know.


  • This may be a reference to the Frank comic "Telescope", in which Frank sees Mars from a telescope and in the third panel the eyes of a Phlovomite can be barely seen popping out of one of his craters.
