Microbes called extremophiles are capable ofsurvive even in the most severe conditions - for example, at very high temperatures, acidity and lack of oxygen. From this it follows that life can even exist on Mars, which, although it is considered the best place to colonize, is still not the most hospitable place. If you believe the words of researchers from the University of Illinois, the first alien creatures can be found in the Martian stones in the form of long pasta.
According to researchers, during the upcomingexpeditions to Mars, astronomers may encounter the bacteria Sulfurihydrogenibium yellowstonense. On Earth, they live in boiling sources, are not afraid of ultraviolet radiation and are able to breathe sulfur or carbon dioxide. Based on their resilience, it will not be surprising that they, or the like, will be found on the Red Planet.
The first contact with aliens is the detection of bacteria.
To the great happiness of scientists, to discover thesebacteria will be easy. The fact is that when they swim in fast flowing water, they tend to cling to each other and form thin strands that look like long pasta or dough. Of course, at the moment the chances of detecting flowing water on Mars are negligible, but billions of years ago the oceans on the planet were clearly. But, if the researchers find filiform stones, they can be sure that the bacteria described above actually existed on Mars.
Stones in the form of pasta can be a sign of life andon other planets studied by mankind. It is possible that extremophiles living now on Earth came precisely from distant planets, the conditions in which became too harsh even for such resistant organisms.
Aliens may indeed exist, butour intellect may simply not be ready to discover them. This assumption was recently put forward by NASA representatives - you can read about their theory in our material.
