Became known, why did you disappear signs of life on Mars

Scientists have put forward a theory that can explain the disappearance of a large number of recently discovered of methane on the planet.

At the Aarhus University in Denmark, scientists were able to explain the disappearance of the signs of life found on Mars. About it reports Science Alert.

Evidence of life on Mars, consider methane, which recently found there. But the item suddenly disappeared from the atmosphere of the red planet.

Experts have found a possible explanation. First, the concentration of methane on Mars varies depending on the season. It can be of 0.24 parts per billion in winter to 0.65 parts per billion in the summer.

Second, scientists found a separate region on the surface of the planet, which periodically releases the methane. One of the causes of gas, just think of the vital functions of living organisms or the decay of their remains.

The abrupt disappearance of the methane, scientists explain wind erosion. It oxidizes the minerals on the surface of the planet, as methane is ionized in methyl, methylene and carbyne. The latter compounds bind with other atoms on the surface of mineral rocks.

Previously on Mars discovered one of the possible signs of life. Also the Correspondent wrote that the mold survives in the open space.
