Discussions about the existence of alien life have been going on between scientists for decades. And maybe now we have real support for that theory. Traces of organic molecules were found on a fragment of a Martian meteorite found in Antarctica in 1984. This, in turn, may indicate that life on Mars may have existed.
The meteorite under study has a very impressive age of about 4 billion years. But it may be the key to solving one of our most pressing issues. Because it contains nitrogen and a number of other organic substances that may indicate the presence of water on Mars in the past.
The meteorite is not the only evidence of water on the Red Planet. Not long ago, one of the Mars rovers discovered traces of a possible lake-and-water system in the Gale crater. This only supplements the existing theory.
But scientists are still slow to make big statements. In their view, the facts on hand were still not very convincing, which meant that the work on Mars would continue in the future. And who knows, perhaps in the future, the world will finally find irrefutable evidence of alien life.
