Scientists of the National aerospace administration of USA (NASA) announced the discovery of organic molecules, methane gas on Mars. On Thursday, June 7, according to Reuters.

The presence of methane may indicate the existence of life on this planet.

It turned out that the level of methane varies depending on the season and increases in summer and decreases in winter. The gas concentration in the atmosphere is changing several times.

Methane found at the bottom of the drained lake. Scientists believe that the gas is generated in the lower layers of the soil of the red planet. It is not excluded that the reason for its appearance on Mars – the activity of microbes, or any geothermal processes.

It is believed that the methane is brought from Earth.
