In 2018, NASA announced that its Curiosity rover had detected organic compounds on Mars. A new study suggests that these compounds are “in keeping with the early life of” on the Red Planet.

The study, published in Astrobiology, notes that some of the organisms are known as thiophenes, which are to be found in the white truffle, coal, and petroleum in the Earth, have been discovered on the Red Planet.

“We have identified a number of biological processes thiophenes that seems to be the more than likely to be chemical, but we still need the evidence,” study co-author Dirk Schulze‑Makuch, said in a statement. “If you’re thiophenes, on the Earth, you would think that they were organic, but, on Mars, of course, in the bar, in order to prove that, it has to be a lot more expensive.”

The research suggests that it’s a organic process of the most likely which the bacteria, in place of the truffle, though, may have played a role in the organic matter of the living.” However, it is also possible that it could have come from non-organic sources, such as meteorites.

If, indeed, the thiophenes were formed from a biological process, it may be caused by bacteria, which would have led to a sulfate reducing process, such as the Mars was warm, wet, 3 billion in the year-ago period.

To learn more about the organic molecules are from the European Space Agency’s Rosalind Franklin, rover, scheduled for launch in July, 2020.

The researchers said that, even if the next robber will get isotopic evidence from carbon and sulfur isotopes, which Schulze‑Makuch puts it, “a clear sign of life,” it is not a guarantee that there is or was life on Mars.

“As Carl Sagan said,” extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence,'” Schulze‑Makuch explained. “I think the evidence is really needed that we are actually sending people there, an astronaut will see it under a microscope and see a moving bug.”

NASA is scheduled to launch a new rover to the planet Mars, also known as Persistence, on July 17th, by the year 2020. This rover will try to detect if there is any fossil evidence of alien life, in addition to other duties.

At the time of arrival on the Martian surface on Aug. 18, 2021, shall be a member of the still-in-operation, Curiosity, and the now-deceased, Opportunity rover on the Red Planet. In contrast to the Curiosity, or the Possibility of it, rover will be on the first helicopter, which will fly to a different planet,” NASA added.

NASA’s long-term goal is to have a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s.
