With the development of the times, people are no longer satisfied with the planet Earth, and begin to gradually conduct research into the mysterious outer space. Since the first rocket that can be sent to the universe flew into space, human beings have not stopped exploring outer space. Nowadays, humans are not only building space stations for research in space stations, but also marching to other planets after many explorations, and Mars has become the main object of exploration in various countries.
New discoveries on Mars
As technology becomes more and more mature, humans have been able to launch machines to explore other planets. Mars is our first stop to explore the universe. With the in-depth exploration of various countries, we have also begun to re-understand the planet Mars.
With the discovery of the US NASA spacecraft, scientists have once again overturned the previous view of Mars: Mars is a dry and cold planet.
In the past, it was thought that Mars once had water on it, but as the eons passed, Mars' water has drifted through the atmosphere into space. Mars, which has lost most of its water, has become a dry and cold planet in our opinion.
But as NASA's investigation shows, reflecting what we know about Mars isn't enough. According to NASA, there is still a lot of water on Mars, and not all of it is dissipated through the atmosphere. But a large part of it is hidden under the earth's crust, just like the largest Sahara desert on earth. Although the outside is desolate, the water resources below are indeed still rich.
Can astronauts survive on Mars with Mars' water?
The significance of the discovery of water on Mars is very significant. With water, it is possible for astronauts to survive on Mars, carry out some transformation work on the surface of Mars, and even construct a relatively complete ecosystem.
Earth's Microbes Can Live on Mars
A NASA study has shown that some microbes from Earth can survive briefly on the surface after being launched to Mars. And the researchers also brought these microbes to Mars to test their tolerance for the Martian environment. This research not only helps to study whether the life of microorganisms is affected during space exploration, but also allows for a more in-depth study of the usefulness and potential threats of these microorganisms on Mars.
The reason why people on earth are so keen to explore outer space is actually to find a planet suitable for human habitation. And water is the source of life, and this discovery on Mars has made many people wonder if there is other life on it. With the development of science and technology, the exploration of Mars in various countries has also begun, which may bring us unexpected good news.
