"The only life there's microbial and researchers studied to get an idea of what we might find on Mars. According to geological evidence the desert core has been and semiarid or arid for fifteen million years and no rain had been recorded there for five hundred years but then something strange happened spend starting in two thousand fifteen it has rained several times in the Tacoma desert desert was a bloomed with life nats. What scientists thought might happen but it didn't actually the rain killed most microbial life in the region causing some species to go extinct hog be water is necessary? Florida water is necessary for life but over the eons the Atacama microbes evolved highly specialized strategies for optimizing. Is it the extraction of scarce humidity from their environment. They couldn't cope with the sudden influx of abundant water into their cell membranes and win. The rains came. They swelled and burst before the rain. Researchers estimated there were sixteen different species of microbes in the soil of the Atacama desert core. There are only two to four left able to survive in these transitory sources of water. All this might have implications for finding life on Mars ars more than three and a half billion years ago geological evidence shows water was abundant on Mars then became dry with occasional episodes of massive flooding. If Mars is like the Tacoma than those floods might not have helped Martian life to persist they might have killed it off. This moment of science comes from Indiana University on the world but

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff, Lauren Vogel bomb here when it comes to searching for microbes on Mars, sending robotic Rover to the most arid environment on earth is a fine place to start as described in a study recently published in the journal frontiers in microbiology a team of researchers explored the extreme environment of Chile's Atacama desert. They wanted to develop strategies that future robotic explorers could use to seek out the hiding places of Marchin microbes in two thousand twenty both NASA and the European Space Agency will launch their first life hunting Rovers to the red planet. The Mars twenty twenty and Exo Mars Rover missions respectively. So mission managers will need to know where to look the other comma desert is about as extreme as it gets for life to eke out an existence not only is the region bone-dry. The core of the desert doesn't get any rainfall for decades at a time, but because of its elevation it also receives high levels of damaging all tra-, violet radiation. Plus, the soil is extremely salty these. Factors should make the Atacama desert toxic for life. But according to team leader Stephane pointing a professor at Yale and u s college in Singapore, some of the bacteria just below the surface quote survive right at the limit of bid ability, and this is very good news for the prospect of finding microbes on Mars pointing team deployed an autonomous Rover mounted drill and sampling device in the Atacama desert to see if it could extract soil samples containing microbes down to a depth of eighty centimeters. That's a little over two and a half feet as a comparison samples were also dug up by hand through DNA sequencing, the researchers found that the bacterial life in the samples from both methods were similar confirming that these hardy bacteria exist, and the autonomous extraction method was successful this test run Shore's up hope that if similarly hardy microbes also thrived just below the Martian surface, a robot could find them, however, finding microbial bio signatures on Mars could be very challenging for remotely operated. Mars rover. The researchers found that the subsurface. Population of bacteria were extremely patchy correlating with increased salt levels that restricted the availability of water appointing put it this way, the patchy nature of the colonization just the Rover would be faced with a needle in haystack scenario in the search for Martian bacteria. Previous studies have described the BIC witness population of relatively unremarkable photosynthetic bacteria. The populate the surface of the desert in Chile, these microorganisms that get their energy from sunlight things start to get a lot more interesting and indeed more alien just below the surface pointing said we saw that with increasing depth that the bacterial community became dominated by 'Bacterial that can thrive in extremely salty and alkaline soils. They in turn were replaced adepts down to eighty centimeters by a single specific group of bacteria that survive by metabolising methane. These specialized microbes have been found before in deep mineshafts and other subterranean environments, but they've never been seen beneath the surface of an arid desert pointing said the communities of bacteria that we discovered were remarkably lacking in complexity and this likely reflects the extreme stress under which they develop. Finding highly specialized microbes that can thrive in the extremely dry salty and alkaline Mars lake soils in the comma desert suggest methane utilizing bacteria could also thrive on the red planet. Elevated levels of methane have been observed on Mars by various spacecraft over the years most recently measures made by Nasr's curiosity Rover, and that's a big deal, unearth, biological and geological processes generate methane and intern microbes can metabolize methane for energy. The discovery of methane in the Martian atmosphere. Could mean there's some kind of active biology going on under ground to confirm this. We need microbe seeking missions that will drill below the surface. And now we have a strategy to track them down should microbial life on Mars. It would undoubtedly be the most significant scientific discovery in human history. But in the proud human tradition of naming new things, what would we call our newly discovered? Marsh neighbors, would we just copy the system of how we name life honor pointing said the way we assign Latin names too. S real bacteria is based on their evolutionary relationship tweets other. And we measure that using their genetic code the naming of Martian bacteria would require a completely new set of Latin names at the highest level if Martian bacteria were a completely separate nary lineage that is they evolved from a different common ancestor to earth bacteria in a second Genesis event. Granted if we find the genetic code of Mars life to be similar to earth life. It could be that life was transferred from earth to Mars in the ancient past via a massive impact a mechanism known as panspermia. But if we find a truly novel genetic code that emerged on Mars, the implications for understanding of life would be profound pointing said if we find truly native Marsh and bacteria, I would love to name one and call it.

A man every section has it's different challenges for sure, and I'm had a real romance about going through the desert, and how wonderful it would be. But certainly the last two weeks when it got really really hot I got really really miserable. But not for long because I just realized that I had to start sleeping during the day and working through the night and by sheer luck, I started following a ride and every day that I wanted to start walking. They just happen to be a random bust. That no one ever uses. And so I spent the last week sleeping from bus. Stop to bustle. I won't be worried about you because doing this on your own. I mean now you've got one bad. But all these chunkys is stopping to see if you wanna leave. Do you sleeping in abandoned huts with did lambs outside the doorway? Italian some risks. Go yet, really glamorous. Friends who just think that I'm going from one YouTube the next with my hair waving in the wind, and how to live and recently, I had to go friend come either who wrote a stretching the desert week may. And she really now has a completely different view of what it what it is that I do. But I will say it where I was walking in a desert. I didn't see many people at all so sleeping by the word wasn't really in Asia. But anywhere else where there are lots of people. I released end a lot of time. And I'm very careful about where I set my tent. So that people can't see me. And I take a lot of measures to make sure that my securities. The first thing I take care of through your website at the moment. I really love the section here. The people who've walked with you all these fantastic smiling faces in these pictures here, you've met some amazing people. I was just thinking today about how these woke is more lack a relay where I get to one town, and I moved off to buy a bunch life loving people. And then I'm handed to the next community. It's just I didn't I never thought that that would be my the most important part of this walk. I thought that thing I would love the Murray's other views just like from my friends who think tanks night hair is sailing in the winds. But in actual fact, and don't get me wrong with us and animals. I have seen have been remarkable. But the people that I have met a really what's my disjointedly. What it is today? Well, tells about some. Some of the surprising ones. Have I can't imagine. Somebody would stop an approach in your obviously, very conscious of your safety in the God must be first. But then that that that's melt away when they stopped talking. It really does. Or I'll meet other travelers who will then give me over France to somebody that I should stay. We've been an upcoming town. And certainly that's what happened when I reached out. Shouts win. I have to say reaching that count is at absolute ller. I had been water poisoned. I had been sick for several days. Run out of water. I run out of mood. I'd had boils on the back of my state because I ruined my sauce and just made a bunch of areas that just had.

But certainly the last two weeks when it got really really hot I got really really miserable. But not for long because I just realized that I had to start sleeping during the day and working through the night and by sheer luck, I started following a ride and every day that I wanted to start walking. They just happen to be a random bust. That no one ever uses. And so I spent the last week sleeping from bus. Stop to bustle. I won't be worried about you because doing this on your own. I mean now you've got one bad. But all these chunkys is stopping to see if you wanna leave. Do you sleeping in abandoned huts with did lambs outside the doorway? Italian some risks. Go yet, really glamorous. Friends who just think that I'm going from one YouTube the next with my hair waving in the wind, and how to live and recently, I had to go friend come either who wrote a stretching the desert week may. And she really now has a completely different view of what it what it is that I do. But I will say it where I was walking in a desert. I didn't see many people at all so sleeping by the word wasn't really in Asia. But anywhere else where there are lots of people. I released end a lot of time. And I'm very careful about where I set my tent. So that people can't see me. And I take a lot of measures to make sure that my securities. The first thing I take care of through your website at the moment. I really love the section here. The people who've walked with you all these fantastic smiling faces in these pictures here, you've met some amazing people. I was just thinking today about how these woke is more lack a relay where I get to one town, and I moved off to buy a bunch life loving people. And then I'm handed to the next community. It's just I didn't I never thought that that would be my the most important part of this walk. I thought that thing I would love the Murray's other views just like from my friends who think tanks night hair is sailing in the winds. But in actual fact, and don't get me wrong with us and animals. I have seen have been remarkable. But the people that I have met a really what's my disjointedly. What it is today? Well, tells about some. Some of the surprising ones. Have I can't imagine. Somebody would stop an approach in your obviously, very conscious of your safety in the God must be first. But then that that that's melt away when they stopped talking. It really does. Or I'll meet other travelers who will then give me over France to somebody that I should stay. We've been an upcoming town. And certainly that's what happened when I reached out. Shouts win. I have to say reaching that count is at absolute ller. I had been water poisoned. I had been sick for several days. Run out of water. I run out of mood. I'd had boils on the back of my state because I ruined my sauce and just made a bunch of areas that just had. My whole life in a state of misery..

"But visually you do go off of the page for a moment that way, and it still kinda freaks me out sometime. But I, I do a lot of command ask which I think save like a local cache of of what you're writing. And then I do a lot of state draft like as as I get to the story. So I kinda treated like a word processor, but in the old days when you need it to save all the time on the MAC, but this on safari. The Microsoft Word trick. You know, every every sentence command us command history flex now, right this, that was good training. When I was doing a lot of ibooks, author stuff. It was the same thing. In fact, towards the end of night books, author, you have to take command as after every every change. If you just Atacama command s because you never know. But so that's impressive. I I, you know, I I haven't tried it for a long time. I, I did get caught in that bug. You're talking about where you would accidentally swipe and and go back a page and you'd lose everything. But I just just just once or twice losing data that way made me hate the idea so much. I don't know that I could ride in the right in right in on the web like that. I, it would just freak me out too much. It's like when you put a Californian in a place like Chicago, that's all brick buildings. And we just look panicked as we're walking around because we're used to earth quakes. That's my impression of trying to ride on the web, but it works for you now maybe and I have had like try Moore's at it. I've purchased Mars edited before, and and I've I've connected to our WordPress before, but I've just I've never actually written in published a story that way. I love the idea of the app and having like a local MAC out for WordPress, but I've never published that way before I've always published from WordPress..
