On Mars conditions for the origin of life – scientists

On the planet found the remains of hydrothermal vents


An international group of researchers published the results of the analysis of the data sent by the Orbiter NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) images of large volumes of sedimentary rocks in the South of Mars. The data indicate that the sediment particles that formed the topography of this part of the world, was formed by streams of hot water raised from the bottom of the springs in volcanically active parts of Mars. This writes Popular mechanics.

According to one theory of the origin of life on Earth, the first components necessary for the emergence of living cells, were synthesized near black smokers – hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor. MRO images are proof that around the same time as on Earth, on Mars could exist conditions similar to those that led to the emergence of life on our planet.

In our days on Mars, no water and no volcanic activity. Hydrothermal vents were blocked there, according to scientists ‘ estimates, 3.7 billion years ago.

  1. Qedlin Saltum says:

    While scientific investigations are laudable, with respect, this is intellectually insulting: between the Darwinian myths of warm little ponds that are typical naturalist propaganda, the impossibility of hydrothermal vents, and wild speculation of Martian or any geochemical conditions and trivialization of biochemical assembly, metabolism and reproduction. There are intractable problems to purely naturalistic processes. Chemical evolution is a myth, there are no cosmic evolutionary processes capable of the complex structure, design, order and operation of biochemical systems required for even the simplest organism. The homochirality essential in nucleotide amino acids, the homopolymerization of the DNA side chains, the nucleotide coding using information design, the cell membrane formation essential for what is required for colocation. coincidence, contamination mitigation and concentrations that are absolutely precise and should be the most profound and frequently reported issues, not wild Martian volcano, lake or vent speculation.
