Important Revelation About Mars!

Important Revelation About Mars!

One of the reasons for the discovery of carbon deposits on Mars, experts say, may be ancient biological life.

Since man stepped into space, Mars has been the center of his attention. Hundreds of researches have been done to find the existence of life here, but so far no concrete evidence of life has been found on Mars. A recent study is a step in that direction.

NASA’s Curiosity rover explores carbon deposits on Mars Is.

According to experts in the US state of Pennsylvania, the cause of this carbon could be space dust or ultraviolet breakdown of carbon dioxide.

A third theory, according to the bacterial theory, is that the microorganisms that live underground produce methane and break down with ultraviolet rays when they reach the surface.

All three cases reported by researchers are unconventional because they do not usually occur on Earth.

It should be noted that Curiosity rover landed on the surface of Mars on August 6, 2012 and since then it has been roaming in the crater, collecting samples of rocks and analyzing them and sending data to the earth.

Curiosity has found carbon from ancient deposits in at least six places on Mars.

“The amount of carbon-12 and carbon-13 in our solar system is the same as it was at the time of its formation,” said Christopher House, author of the paper and a geologist at Pennsylvania State University.

He added that both isotopes are present in everything but because carbon-12 reacts faster than carbon-13, looking at both quantities of the sample could reveal the carbon cycle.
