They find signs of life in a Martian volcano

marte-volcan Scientists from Brown University (USA) have detected hydrated silicon deposits in the Syrtis Major volcanic complex on Mars , which could have supported life relatively recently.

In an article published in the journal Nature Geoscience in its digital edition, the researchers suggest that the mineral deposit testifies to the passage of water and the presence of a hot climate in that area . Hydrated silicon, detected thanks to the US space agency (NASA) probe Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter , is formed in hydrothermal environments. On Earth, these types of environments with silicon formations are a common conservation area for early microbial fossils. "If there was life here, this would be the place where it was buried, a kind of 'microbial morgue', " explains JR Skok, who led the study.

Experts say that about 3.5 billion years ago the climate of the Red Planet changed, from relatively hot and humid to arid and cold. But the probe data reveal that there was a place where the environment remained hot and humid at least until 3.5 million years ago, precisely the area where the volcanic cone is located.
