NASA has always been curious about finding the source of life on Mars. However, this time the NASA scientists are more confused due to a difficult occurrence.
Ever since human civilization has prioritized science, Earth is supposed to be the explicit planet having chances of life. It’s the atmospheric presence of the Earth that makes it exclusive to sustain life. But, for a few years, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) has been emphasizing about finding possibilities of life on Mars (also known as the Red Planet of the solar system). Earth-like atmospheric elements have also been found over the Mars surface.
Reason of confusion
However, the scientists are now puzzled up to some extent due to a mysterious occurrence. It is here to note that the scientists here at NASA have been in all efforts towards gauging the seasonal variations in the gas levels that cover the air straight above Mars’s surface. The air was found in the space beyond Gale Crater, a zone across which Curiosity rover of NASA is established.
The most shocking aspect for the scientists was the varying oxygen level of the atmosphere over Mars. In around six years, Curiosity rover of NASA breathed in the air of Gale Crater and studied the elements of it. The outcome, though, has put scientists into another baffling state, which rather might be shocking for many others.
Strangely, during the periods of Martian Spring and summer, the Oxygen level of Mars grows an additional 400 parts per million, which is an extra thirty percent in comparison to what it should have been. Scientists are in all efforts about figuring out the cause behind this suspicious hike. However, they are sure about the fact that the reason is undoubtedly not photosynthesis as there is no living organism over here.
