Scientists advise NASA to "sink" into the quest for alien life on Mars. digging. Mars has not yet found any evidence of life.
Well, this is the opinion of Joseph Mihalski, Associate Professor of Natural Sciences at the University of Hong Kong, who is speaking live on science. addicted to our own existence on Earth, to think that life must be hidden on the surface of the planet.
When Mars is a young planet, he explains, his surface would be quite similar to Earth. lost its magnetic field, exposing it to intense radiation that would make it harder on the surface. "Life could have appeared in these hydrothermal conditions and survived in the underground for a very long time," he said. the biosphere. [1
And this discovery, he says, can also be applied to Mars.
now, when it really is a limit to understanding what really means a "deep biosphere" and how it refers to exoplanets and other planets in our solar system, "the professor explained. This is a window of our origin. "
Mihalski believes he is" even more habitable "beneath the ground on Mars than on the surface.
In fact, he suspects that the cooler core of Mars might be even better to accept living organisms that can be dormant for a long time, but can survive by metabolizing hydrogen, methane, potentially sulfur, "he said.
But Under Surface Mars
Due to the simple distance between the Earth and Mars (about 33.9 million miles), the challenge is to explore the fourth planet from the sun. why NASA uses satellites, probes, telescopes, rovers and assistants to study the surface of Mars InSight's tools are designed to roam 20 feet in the ground on Mars to measure the temperature of the planet
