Curiosity finds active organic chemistry on Mars | Gizmag


curated by | December 18, 2014

“Drill samples taken from an area called “Cumberland,” which was once mudstone comprising an ancient Martian lakebed, have yielded the first definite proof of the existence of organic chemicals on Mars. The organic molecules were detected beneath the surface in powdered rock brought up by the rover’s drill, where the sample was protected against the destructive radiation and volatile chemicals of the Martian surface.”
