Did life start in Mars as recent as last year – extraterrestrial experiments or human hands behind the phenomenon?
Something strange is happening in Mars. As terrestrial probes and optical scanning devices monitor Mars, the red planet is showing signs of life. According to scientists something strange is occurring since last year in Mars. The planet is all on a sudden showing signs of life.
New data showing that patterns of water and methane in Mars'' atmosphere overlap may have important implications for the idea that the planet could harbor life. But where did this life come from after we all concluded years back that Mars has no atmosphere and is for all practical purposes really dead.
The finding comes from the Mars Express probe in orbit around the Red Planet. If microbes were making methane seen in Mars'' atmosphere, they would rely on water, so the association between the two has excited some researchers. But where did this life come from all on a sudden after we all concluded years back that Mars has no atmosphere and is for all practical purposes really dead?
The geothermal activity from underground heat sources on Mars generates methane through the oxidation of iron contained in hot basaltic rocks. The process, known as serpentisation, releases hydrogen that combines with carbon to form methane. Some project scientists speculate that geothermal heat beneath Mars causes ice and other material to move towards the surface: the so-called "ice table" hypothesis.
Researchers have speculated that microbial life may exist in liquid water below this ice table. It has been suggested that the organisms are methanogens, microbes that produce methane as a waste product of their life process.
Some scientists believe either extraterrestrial civilization has started experiments to confuse terrestrial probes or human hand is behind implanting some strange life related activities, which will soon show that life is there, is Mars. Of course the third possibilities are that life related activities were overlooked in Mars for a long time.
