London, Jan 15: Orbiting spacecraft and giant Earth-based telescopes have detected a haze of methane around Mars, which scientists say is a result of alien microbes living just below the soil of the Red Planet, first evidence that Martian microbes maybe still alive today.
Though some scientists reckon methane is also produced by volcanic processes, there are no known active volcanoes on Mars.
Furthermore, NASA has found the gas in the same regions as clouds of water vapour, the vital “drink” needed to support life.
According to a report in The Sun, experts speculate that the methane is being emitted as a waste product by organisms called methanogens living in water beneath underground ice.
They would have to be alive today because the methane would otherwise have been lost from the Martian atmosphere, they added.
