Granted, much of that room is in caves just below the planet’s surface, and much of that life will likely be microbes rather than little green men 다운로드. But here’s the kicker — fully 3% of Mars has the right conditions to support life, the researchers say.
…if you run the same numbers on Earth, just 1% of the planet’s volume can support life 아마존 비디오 다운로드.
Mars’ surface is too cold and too low-pressure to support liquid water…But Lineweaver’s study looked at geological data from decades of Mars missions — and concluded that it would be warm and pressurized enough for life to live just below the surface 다운로드. Warmth from the planet’s core provides the heat, and soil packed in from above creates the necessary air pressure.
So are there vast empires of microbes — or even something bigger — lurking just below that dusty red surface 애나벨 자막 다운로드? We should know more next August when NASA’s Curiosity Rover arrives on Mars. This next-generation space robot comes equipped with a laser beam that can blast rocks, and a robotic arm that can examine the results 다운로드.
