Boron detected by Curiosity News: After landing in Gale Crater on August 6, 2012, Curiosity, a Mars rover has rendered some clues about the possibility of human adaptation on Mars. In today’s latest discovery, while studying Curiosity’s data, researchers say the rover has detected boron in the 3.8 billion-year-old Gale crater. Now, this is something Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and other space organizations like NASA and SpaceX should focus on. With the passage of time Curiosity (rover) seems to achieve its goals related to Surface radiation, Planetary process, Geological and geochemical and Biological objectives. With pH (Mars groundwater) ranging from neutral-to-alkaline and temperature (Mars underground water) lying between 0 to 60 degrees Celsius (32 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit), the boron found in calcium sulfate mineral veins designates that Gale Crater’s groundwater was once habitable.
Mars once had a life, Boron detected by Curiosity reveals itself
Postdoctoral researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico and lead author of this study Patrick Gasda showing how crucial the finding of Boron on red planets dusty surface says “Because borates may play a significant role in making RNA—one of the building blocks of life—finding boron on Mars further opens the possibility that life could have once arisen on the planet.”
“Borates are one possible bridge from simple organic molecules to RNA. Without RNA, you have no life. The presence of boron tells us that, if organics were present on Mars, these chemical reactions could have occurred,” he added.
When thawed in water, Boron which matures borate is an element that can catalyze the development of RNA (ribonucleic acid). Boron distinguished by Curiosity News: Signalling to alien or signaling to any other civilization, Curiosity Rover has identified Boron 3.8 billion-year-old Gale crater.
Following this, explorers believe that the first proto-life may have been made up by RNA strands possible. Boron distinguished by Curiosity News: Signalling to alien or signaling to any other civilization, Curiosity Rover has identified Boron 3.8 billion-year-old Gale crater.
