NASA scientists search for life in space continues. This image taken on Mars is outside the world. ancient microbial life It shows where the first evidence might be. The area in this image taken from NASA’s Perseverance vehicle was taken by experts. “Enchanted Lake” was named.
Enchanted Lake on Mars may have hosted life in outer space
any the puddle It may come as a surprise that this area, where there is no lake, is called a lake. However, the water on the surface of Mars billions of years ago is thought to have disappeared. And while there is water on the planet, this area is also believed to be a lake. This lake was in space billions of years ago. one of the sources of life it could be.
Enchanted Lakewhich scientists believe was filled with water billions of years ago Jezero CraterIt is located in a delta at the western end of . The delta covers a huge fan-shaped area containing thin layers of sedimentary rock. of this region geological feature convincing scientists that there is water on Mars.
These rocks come from the river flowing into the crater lake. from mud, silt and sand is thought to occur. organisms around the lake. in a fossilized manner It is believed that it may have been stuck between layers. For this reason perseverance continues his research around the lake.
It is stated that the shared image was taken in April. perseverance Since then, it has been continuing its progress in the delta. The spacecraft is currently under the mission team’s “Hogwallow Flats” He continues to work in the field of sedimentary rocks, which he named. In the coming weeks, Perseverance will sample from some rocks.
Collected samples, together with a separate task Will be sent to the world. Scientists finally collected samples to determine whether life exists on Mars. opportunity to analyze will catch. a possible remnant of life It could be proof that we are not alone in space.
These remains may also shed light on unraveling some of the mysteries about how life evolved on Earth. Do you believe there is life in space? You can share your views with us in the comments section.
