A new study suggests that life was possible on Mars in the hundreds of millions of years before the rise in the Earth.

The Red Planet may have been ripe for life as early as 4.48 billion years ago, and after the life of the brakes of the meteorites stopped hitting the earth, according to the study. And it is possible that you would be able to have got at between 4.2 billion euros and 3.5 billion years ago, according to the observations of the study’s lead author, Mr. Moser.

“Giant asteroid impact on Mars is between 4.2 and 3.5 billion years ago, but really accelerated with the release of the early water from the interior of the planet, setting the stage for life-in the form of comments,” Moser said in a statement. “For this to work, you can point out the best places to get samples back from Mars.”

“[Ninety-seven per cent of the grains exhibit weak or no shock metamorphic features, and the thermal behavior of the shock-induced melting,” the study abstract reads. “By contrast, about 80 [percent] of the studied grains were bombarded crust of the Earth and the Moon are in such positions. The massive impact that are proposed to be made of Mars’ hemispheric dichotomy must, therefore, have been more than the 4.48 Gyr ago, later on a devastating bombing campaign.”

Mars is generally believed to have formed about 4.6 billion years ago, and the Earth is soon to be followed about 60 million years later. It is generally accepted that it was for the first time on Earth some 3.5 billion years ago.

The study, published this week in the journal Nature Geoscience.
