BALL – Scientists test technology to seek life signs in Mars (Chile)



The team of researchers is testing technology to find signs of life in Mars in the Chilean desert of Atacama, local Earth whose characteristics are closer to the 'red planet', and where new robotic missions are planned in 2020.

NASA, a North American space agency, wants to send a new robotic vehicle to Mars in 2020 to look for life vestiges on the planet, and took a robotic to the Atacama desert, which collected basement samples at a depth of 80 centimeters.

The sediment samples revealed unusual microbes that scientists attribute to inhospitable conditions, similar to Mars.
