Due to overnight changes in the atmosphere of Mars, the mystery of methane can be solved.

Mars is the second planet where life is possible, Many types of craters are found in this red planet, and one of them is Gail crater, 154 km in diameter of this crater, this crater is about 3.8 billion years old, methane gas is found in this crater, because from this big crater Methane gas is being emitted, as Mars soil and air samples were tested, analyzing this reaction data obtained through NASA's 'Curiosity Rover.The overnight change in the Martian atmosphere kept the gas close to the ground until the morning, and it can be understood that the Curiosity Rover has detected methane gas.

Many missions were carried out to search for life on Mars, since 2003, many orbiters were released into Mars orbit through multiple spacecraft, and these spacecraft have carried varying amounts of methane to Mars (SN: 1/15/09  ) Is explored.The same NASA landed Curiosity Rover near Gale Crater in 2012.Curiosity Rover observed that gas volume rises and falls in a seasonal cycle (SN: 6/7/18).If there is sunlight on methane, this atmosphere should not last more than about 300 years, but "a seasonal cycle makes us see, or tell, that at the present time something actively produces or destroys methane.As we know, microorganisms produce methane on Earth, and therefore detect methane gas on the red planet, and science considers it as a possible sign of life.

Curiosity rover has detected a Gayle crater near the equator on Mars, which, studied, Curiosity measured an average methane concentration of 0.41 parts per billion inside the Gayle crater, and is a depression of about 154 kilometers wide. For Mars missions.  The European Space Agency launched its Trace Gas Orbiter, which was part of the Exomars mission, it came to Mars in 2016, (SN: 10/18/16), when the orbiter called Gail  Flew over Retr, but it found no methane gas, it flew over a surprising him.That Gale Crater and found no methane.But the atmosphere may still have minuscule methane concentrations below 0.05 parts per billion, but the trace gas orbiter cannot smell it. If there is enough methane emission from Mars, the curiosity will be so high, that the orbit  To find out, there must be enough methane in the atmosphere. NASA's Curiosity Rover measured all methane at night, and found that the gases differed in the Martian atmosphere differently than during the day. It warms the air during the day, due to sunlight.Due to which currents and convection is formed, it mixes different types of molecules together.  Methane can be mixed and diluted in the atmosphere during the daytime, and this overnight, the air becomes the surface of methane in cool, and curiosity can smell it, but after sunrise it becomes methane thin again.

Viscori believes that the major problem is that methane concentrations are detected at different times in the night, and this does not explain the periodic spikes in methane, but curiosity has seen this.(SN: 4/28/15).Those spikes showed large methane increases at random intervals throughout Curiosity's mission.Curiosity Rover saw the most recent spike in June 2019 this year, it was the largest plume ever seen, with methane levels at 20 billion per billion, almost 50 times higher than the seasonal average, after a few days, methane gas  Levels returned to normal, as before.

The Esa / Nasa Hubble Space Telescope captured the image of cluster 47 Tucanae.

The Nasa/Esa Habble telescope has captured an image of a group of stars, spherical in shape, spanning a large area, this group of stars has billions of stars, these stars have their own color, which is much about them  It says.  In the image we can see, around 35,000 stars are visible near the center of the cluster 47 Tucanae , the stars are tightly packed near the core (top left) of the cluster, and propagate farther away from the core.

In the cluster image of stars, how stars are shown in natural colors, scientists have told about their composition and age through the color of stars, as the star which appears red, the stars end of their life. Is near, bright red signifies giants, while more common yellow stars indicate that these stars are still young, whose age is similar to our sun.

Cluster 47 Tucanae image taken by Hubble's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2, this image was taken in 1999.

According to Nasa's report the rules protecting other planets from pollution can be very strict

Some scientists believe that the moon will have an interesting mission to seek life, with scientists also considering it as a potentially interesting site to investigate the origin of life on the Moon. But some scientists say that most of the moon is not astrologically interesting. Some places on the moon, Mars and other planets are safe, while some places are unprotected.  Some policies may be too strict to protect the Moon, Mars and other places.

What was the conclusion of NASA's 12-expert panel To review voluntary international guidelines, to keep space missions polluting other worlds with earthly life. These guidelines are recommendations of the international scientific organization COSPAR, which revised policies for spacefaring countries for decades.  Nasa will send a sample-collection mission to Mars next year, the same other space agency also lunar  Interpretation of preparing the trip, as the scientists, there is an urgent need to update safety guidelines of the planets.  A…

How did life begin on Earth? Is it possible by a violent collision on the moon.

The moon, which has many stories to make, did the violent, and cosmic collision during the making of the moon make life possible on earth? This is a big question, but a new study shows that this is true. Science has given many theories about life on earth, but there is always a question in our mind that how life came to be born on earth.Given by science, has many theories, and tries to explain to us how to find elements for life on our planet: such as carbon and nitrogen elements.
Scientists have previously believed that meteorites have brought life-giving elements to Earth, bacteria with meteorites coming from space for example, and the energy of explosions caused by the continuous fall of meteorites from organic matter.Synthesis of. And the isotopic signatures of these elements on Earth coincide with those objects, but what? The ratio of carbon to nitrogen is not very accurate.If we think of transporting the elements that are important for life on Earth due to meteorites, then each p…
