Would they use ITIL on Mars?

Yes! And – I’m not referring to the latest Mars Curiosity rover computer incident (apart from this reference, D’oh!)…

As I returned home from the school run this morning I noticed birds flying overhead in a V formation. A relatively common site, many species of bird fly like this, as do aircraft pilots when flying in formation.

Why do separate species independently develop the same patterns of behaviour? The answer to this question is the same as the reason why they would use ITIL on Mars (eventually).
