  • Life on Mars is Possible

Are there Any Chances of Life Forms being Present on Martian Soil?

According to several space scientists at NASA and around the world, while previously it was thought that Mars only had water reserves, now it is being proven that it may also have oxygen supplies.

The fact is that the brine and oxygen mixture in the subterranean canals on the Red Planet is a potent combo, thus giving rise to the possibility that aerobic microbes might exist on it. This is still a beautiful hypothesis which can any moment be slain via an ugly fact, yet it is indeed worth exploring further.

It is a reality that the planet earth is getting too crowded and polluted. Maybe sometime in the future, mankind will have to colonize Mars. While some see this as a highly unlikely event, others see it as a welcome move towards a new beginning for humanity.

In the past, it was thought that Mars contained water yet didn’t have much in the way of oxygen supplies. Yet now scientists are changing their tone of voice regarding this matter.

Even organisms such as sponges may be currently existent deep within the canals of the Red Planet. This is something which holds great interest for NASA and space science.

While a summer night on Mars can see the temperature plummet to -79 degrees centigrade, its atmosphere can undergo terraformation thanks to human effort. To build domed cities on Mars remains a dream of mankind.

Already steps are being taken to send an InSight Probe to Mars. This will be different from the Mars Rover. Whereas the Mars Rover scurried all over the surface of the Red Planet, the Insight Probe will land on it, stay put and spread its wings which will consist of solar panels.

Also, it will send a long 16-inch nail deep into the planet’s surface. This will determine the temperature and the wobble of the planet. Also, any marsquakes will be detectable thanks to this arrangement.

Also, India plans on sending its probe to the Red Planet sometime in 2022 or 2023. Ultimately, people like Elon Musk have such ideas as using nuclear weapons to heat up the surface and atmosphere of Mars. This is a controversial idea yet it may be viable in the future despite its wild and weird nature.

Mars is the closest possible inhabitable heavenly body to earth beside the moon which is our planet’s satellite. It offers a chance of alien life forms existing deep inside its surface. Whether this turns out to be real or just a fluke remains to be seen though.
