Scientists found proof of “biotic activity” on a rock from Mars


This meteorite contains microscopic burrows and spheres resembling to the traces of the Earth microorganisms eating rocks. The study, developed by a team from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena compared the rock which fell to Earth during the Stone Age with another, which fell in Egypt in 1911, to demonstrate the same provenience. Any conclusion about the existence of life on Mars is premature and this is why researchers interpreted with prudence the modest signs. Some interesting results were however obtained last year from the activity of ’s Mars rover “Curiosity” too, which discovered the evidence that Mars could have supported living microbes billions of years ago.
All that facts determined a new scientific interest to have a real answer regarding the possibility of the ancient life on Mars and maybe in the years to come something will pride the certitude.
