On Mars have found a huge zone of life


Scientists of Brown University (USA) have found out that on Mars there were several billions years ago suitable conditions for existence of hemosintetichesky microorganisms which receive energy for activity by means of oxidation of inorganic substances. The Science Alert edition reports about it. Researchers have analysed the data obtained by means of the orbital device Mars Odyssey. They have determined the content in rocks of such radioactive elements as thorium and potassium. Taking into account a half-life period of these substances planetologists could find out in what quantity thorium, potassium and uranium were present at bark four billion years ago. It has turned out that there were enough radioactive elements for a radioliz of water — splittings of molecules as a result of ionizing radiation. Scientists have found out that in the Martian bark there was an extensive zone potentially suitable for dwelling of live organisms, and its thickness reaches several kilometers. In her result of a radioliz enough the hydrogen necessary for maintenance of a subsurface litotrofny microbic ecosystem (SLiME) during hundreds of millions of years could be formed.
