Isolated Ecosystem in the Deepst Depths


 

Interesting report here on the probable existence of bacterial life in the basalt rock layer of the ocean floor.  These organisms would be chemotrophs living on chemistry rather than sunlight.  To be most accurate the critters haven’t actually been found down there, but evidence of their activity and traces of DNA suggest it to be true.

Now pair this with the Mars Rover’s recent finding, and you’ve really got something!  I say, terraform Mars first, ask questions later.  Earth will be long gone before we can make Mars habitable, best to get started now!

 


Mars may have once been able to support life…


 

In its investigation of Martian Rock the Mars Rover seems to have found that not only did Mars have water, but it also but that water was not intolerably acidic/basic or overly salty.  Scientists seem to think that Chemotrophs, bacteria that get their energy from chemicals around them as opposed to sunlight or eating sugars or other bugs, could have survived in the conditions of ancient Mars.  However, no signs of actual life have been found as of yet.

Interactive Panorama of Mars

Thank you Malacandra Rover. I just can’t wait until you meet the Hrossa. I spent an hour looking for them but couldn’t find any in the panorama.
