Life on Mars: NASA warns world not ready for revolutionary discovery
Washington : NASA has claimed that they are very close to find life on Mars but warned that the world is not ready for the implications of the revolutionary discovery.
According to reports, Jim Green, the chief scientist at the US space agency, has claimed that a rover from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) will produce evidences of life on the Red Planet within months after they land on the planet in March 2021.
While NASA’s rover, which will be the first between the two to be launched, in July 2020, is called ‘Mars 2020’, the ESA rover is called ‘ExoMars.’
The two rovers will execute separate digs on the planet and a sample will be sent to earth for the examination.
Green, who heads the Planetary Science Division at NASA, is quoted by the report as saying that the potential discovery would start a whole new line of thinking. However, the report also mentioned about a warning by Green that the world is not ready for such a news.
He further said that the agency was close to finding ‘something’ and making some announcements and also said the discovery would give the scientists a new set of questions to explore.
