Marsquakes Could Be The Key To Life On Mars
Quakes on Mars could have helped the tiniest forms of microbial life survive beneath the planet’s surface. New information about how hydrogen is formed in rocks here on Earth by seismic activity hints that the same processes may have taken place on the Red Planet.
As one of the building blocks for life, hydrogen would be an exciting find on Mars, to say the least. It’d also provide some interesting conversation on whether terraforming the planet, as SpaceX recently hinted at accomplishing, would be a viable route, ethically and practically.
