Welcome to my new website and blogg.
Today I am thrilled as NASA reports on the possibilities of life on Mars. Just as cows “burp” a gas called methane, the probe Curiosity has found this very gas on the Red Planet.
Cows on Mars?
No, if anything, more like bacteria.
Bacterial metabolism produces methane just as many other living organisms do. Interestingly the scientists also say the gas is “coming and going”. Hence it is not just atmospheric, but something might be pumping it out. Could be a volcano, but could also be something “living”.
Life outside of our own planet would be a the largest thing that happened for mankind since we started gazing at the stars, wondering if we are alone, and open up for a stronger public and commercial pressure to put a man on Mars quicker than planned missions 2030.
