According to Nasa researchers and scientists, life on Mars is most likely hidden in deep subterranean caves. To study the possibility of life on Mars, the US space agency is sending a new rover this summer.
Space.com reports that Vlada Stamenkovic, a NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory researcher, recently expressed this idea at the Mars Extant Life conference.
According to scientists:
“The surface of Mars is a highly oxidizing, radiation-heavy environment in which liquid water cannot be kept stable for long periods of time. It’s the worst area on Mars to seek signs of life. On Mars, groundwater is the only place where life may survive.”
Yes, Mars’s surface is cold, dry, and full of radiation. Underground caverns could allow aliens to live.
NASA researchers seek to build nimble robots that might investigate Mars’ cave networks. The Astrogeology Science Center at the US Geological Survey has documented over 1000 cave openings on Mars.
