Life on Mars may be a reality, researchers are saying, after discovering rocks on Mars that may have been formed by living organisms, stated a report released Friday.
Newly-discovered rock formations on Mars could hold the fossilized remains of early life on the planet, according to a research team with the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) in California, the BBC initially reported.
The ancient rock formations known as Nili Fossae are nearly identical to rock
formations found in Australia in the Pilbara region.
Researchers, who published their report in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, say this is significant because life was found to be contained in mineral form in the northwest Australian region.
