According to a new study, published in the Nature Astronomy this week stated that ancient life on Mars destroyed the planet.
Life on Mars
Many scientists and experts believe that there was life on Mars billions of years ago. They believe this life to be a microbe (a type of bacteria-like organism). Microbes produce methane as a byproduct which can lead to climate change.
Scientist believes that these organisms and their byproducts were a leading drive that damaged Mars‘s atmosphere.
From evidence from the many explorations of Mars, we know that the planet at once had rivers, lakes, and maybe even oceans. But today we know the planet, to be covered by a red barren desert.
