Significant Discovery Of Organic Molecules On Mars | Ancient Aliens More Likely
This is brilliant news, albeit something that people already know, it's just that NASA and the ESA are "teasing out" information bit by bit.
No amino-acid derivatives were detected. However, chemically derivatized benzoic acid and ammonia were detected. Mass spectra matching derivatized phosphoric acid and phenol were present, as were several nitrogen-bearing molecules and as yet unidentified high-molecular-weight compounds. The origin of these compounds, including those that may be internal to the Sample Analysis at Mars background, is examined. This derivatization experiment on Mars has expanded the inventory of molecules present in Martian samples and demonstrated a powerful tool to further enable the search for polar organic molecules of biotic or prebiotic relevance.
This isn’t the first time Curiosity has found organic molecules. In 2018, Curiosity found organic molecules in three-billion-year-old sedimentary rocks near the surface of Mars.
The rover has a built-in Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument that measures organic chemicals in samples collected by Curiosity on Mars. Meanwhile, Perseverance’s design gives priority to the sample return aspect of the mission. NASA is going to be taking samples from Mars and is gonna be sending them back to Earth for extended analysis.
It's amazing what is happening with space and space exploration. Things are moving on and technology is improving rapidly.
Check out the published papers and the links I've added. It's all fantastic information and it all leads to historic moments and that's why I thought I'd link you all to this great stuff.
