The question to this day surrounding life in Mars continues. Had there been any proof that life existed on this planet?
However, NASA’s Curious rover may be able to help out in this area and it looks like the discovery of a Martian Lake could point us towards a YES answer.
Water had reportedly been discovered in the planet, after studying a large crater which scientists believe could have housed some form of microbial life.
They studied samples taken by the rover, carefully looking at the rock’s chemistry. They were apparently able to determine that this particular area of Mars likely contained a freshwater lake around 3.6 billion years ago.
Because of the rocks’ composition, scientists think that this lake could have possibly sustained a type of microbial life called chemolithoautotrophs, which are often found in similar conditions on Earth.
