In the atmosphere of Mars discovered methane: it can produce living organisms

The question about the existence of life on the red planet has again become topical: European scientists using probe found signs of carbon dioxide and ozone in the atmosphere. Was also detected methane, which is mainly produced by living organisms, according to the portal WWW.PLANETANOVOSTI.COM.

the Methane on Mars was opened in 2003. Even then, scientists were talking about possible alien life. This is due to the fact that this substance is formed in several ways: either in the process of volcanic activity, or biological, that is, the gas producing bacteria.

the New data collected by the European space Agency probe, show high concentrations of several gases (CO2 and O3) at wavelengths where experts expect to see methane. According to Kevin Olsen from the University of Oxford, the opening is amazing: ingredients are in a precise range of wavelengths, where everything is expected to register the methane in large quantities. For the first time on Mars was discovered ozone in another place.

the Atmosphere of Mars is about one hundred times thinner than earth's and has for two years studied machine Exo Mars. Air shell consists of a certain amount of nitrogen, argon, oxygen, carbon dioxide, ozone and other elements.

the Presence of carbon dioxide in the place where the experts will "harvest" the methane, can play a role in the further presence of methane. This gas is "living" only 400 years, so its presence even in small quantities suggests either geological processes or on the activity of bacteria deep in the bowels of the planet. The exploration of the red planet will continue. Maybe the mystery of methane will be solved and people will actually find living organisms on the red planet.
