Mars Hosting Life

  • The question we have right now is that "can Mars host life now?"
  • We're still not sure yet. However, if we're not speaking about humanoids inhabiting Mars, then there might be a possible chance that there are already existing life forms already in Mars' subterranean reservoirs due to some evidence that there is liquid water locked away in it.
  • But for now, the red planet remains as an eerie time capsule of the era when Earth formed into what we know of it today.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

  • Scientists believe that as long as there is a consistent source of water, life forms will be able to flourish. However, Mars' surface has been exposed to damaging solar and cosmic radiation, so the chances of life ever forming are largely reduced.
  • Unlike Earth, Mars did not have a relatively thick atmosphere nor did it have a strong magnetic field for it to end up like Earth.
  • With the lack of a magnetic sheath to protect it from the solar wind, Mars' atmosphere has been stripped away.
What Mars Is Like

Mars is currently a dry and irradiated planet according to our robot friends, Perseverance and Curiosity. Evidence suggests that Mars was once a wet planet, however, there is substantial debate regarding Mars' origins and the life span of its long-lost bodies of water.

Some theory suggests that it might have been because of active volcanoes that melted the Martian permafrost, while others suggest that it was because of a cataclysmic asteroid impact.

Mars
  • Mars has captivated people since we first saw the reddish hue object in the night sky. In the late 1800s, telescopes revealed a surface full of patterns and landforms thought to be a bustling Martian civilisation.
  • Now, we know there are no constructions on Mars. However, the toxic planet we see today might have once been as habitable as Earth.
  • Only uncrewed spacecraft have made a trip to the red planet. NASA is hoping to land the first humans on Mars by the 2030s.
The Fermi Paradox

The Fermi Paradox states that given the technological advancement and imperialistic desires of human beings who live in a fairly young planetary system, aliens from other highly advanced star systems should have visited earth already and even conquered the Milky Way galaxy if they desired.

As that has(apparently) not happened yet, the Fermi Paradox, initially quoted by Italian physicist Enrico Fermi, hypothesized that there are no advanced civilizations in our galaxy.
