In a remarkable interview with NASA’s Planetary Science Division director Jim Green, D. Ph., it has been said that the space agency is set to close in the “how to make a number of announcements about the finding of life on Mars, but we’re not ready for it.

“It’s a revolutionary,” Green said in a recent interview with The Telegraph. “It’s just like when Copernicus said,” no, we have to go around the Sun. Completely revolutionary at the time. It’s going to start with a whole new line of thinking. I don’t think that we can be prepared for the results. It’s something We don’t.”

He also added that he is concerned because he believes that the us is very close to the find of a life, and make an announcement about it, but is wondering what is going to happen next.

“What ends up happening is a whole new set of research questions,” Green continued. “That’s not life as we do? How are we connected? Life can move from planet to planet, or we have made a spark, and in the right place, and the spark to create life-like us or not like us, on the basis of the chemical environment in which it is?”

In a statement to Fox News, a NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said the agency is excited about the mission to Mars, as well as the future mission, where the prospects for life have been removed.

“A key part of NASA’s job is to search for the building blocks and signs of life elsewhere, and we are excited about the scientific discoveries of our rovers on Mars, now and in future, as well as missions to Europa, Titan, and other locations,” Beutel said via e-mail. Just like the NASA astronauts landing on the Moon changed our view of our place in the universe, and the discovery of life elsewhere would be a civilisation-changing event. As with all scientific discoveries, NASA would have to work in order to confirm and to share their validated information to the world as soon as possible.”

Next July, NASA is scheduled to launch in its Mars 2020 rover, in what it hopes will be a successful search for extra-terrestrial life on the Red Planet. This past November, the space agency has selected Lake Crater as the landing site for the rover, which is expected to touch down on the surface of the planet on Jan. 18, 2021.

The 28-mile-wide Lake is a Crater on the western rim of the Isidis Planitia, a giant impact basin to the north of the planet relative to the equator. The us noted that it is the home to some of the world’s most scientifically interesting landscapes in mission to Mars has to offer,” adding that it was once the home of an ancient river delta, which is the ancient organic molecules and any signs of microbial life could be saved, billions of years ago.

Lake Crater was chosen from more than 60 locations.

In addition to the Mars 2020 mission, which is scheduled to start up at an estimated cost of more than $2 billion, according to Space News, the European Space Agency also have a rover on Mars. The ExoMars rover is scheduled to land on the Red Planet in March 2021.


Green said that, these two missions will provide opportunities for life,” he added, “we have never drilled that deep down in the earth.

“When we first started in the field of astrobiology in the mid -‘ 90s, we went on the search for extreme life,” Green continued. “We’re going to go down in the mine two miles deep into the Earth, and they will cry with the water, and they were full of life. We have gone into nuclear cesspools, places where you would think nothing could survive, and they are full of life. The bottom line is, where there is water there is life.”

In June 2018, NASA made a stunning announcement that, having regard to the Curiosity rover has been found to organic molecules in the rocks to the old stream bed of the lake.” The rocks are billions of years old, NASA said it before, and he had not found the life on the planet.

In a study published in August suggested that the Red Planet was warm and wet enough to take the heavy rainfall and flowing water, and an environment that may have supported life, and between 3 and 4 billion years ago.
