The group of scientists of Brown University has found a zone in which there were suitable conditions for life of hemosintetichesky microorganisms several billions years ago on Mars. Writes Science Alert about it. These organisms receive energy for activity by means of oxidation of inorganic substances. After the analysis of the data obtained багодаря to the orbital device Mars Odyssey the content in rocks of such radioactive elements as potassium and thorium has been established. Later planetologists have also established their quantity four million years ago. As a result it has turned out that the quantity of radioactive elements was sufficient for a radioliz of water - splittings of molecules as a result of ionizing radiation. It has turned out that the Martian bark had an extensive zone which potentially could be suitable for life. Its thickness was several kilometers. And радиолиз could promote formation of enough hydrogen. It would be enough for support of a litotrofny microbic ecosystem for hundreds of millions of years. Earlier it was reported that the plan of colonization of Mars has been made. He was created by group of the Swiss scientists. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
