Nasa accidentally kills proof of Life on Mars made a big mistake 50 years ago Know
It is noteworthy that Viking landers were sent to detect life on Mars. He analyzed the soil of Mars. According to the Daily Mail report, Dirk Schulze-Makuch says that initially the results were positive, but no evidence of organic matter was found in the soil test. Schulze-Makuch believes that there must have been a lot of water with nutrient solution in the soil of Mars, due to which any evidence of life present in it would have been destroyed in some time.
Two landers landed on Mars under NASA's Viking mission. On July 20, 1976, Viking 1 and on September 3, 1976, Viking 2 landers landed on the surface of Mars. Many instruments were fitted in them. The purpose of both landers was to search for possible evidence of life on the Red Planet.
As part of the experiment, water was added to the soil of Mars so that signs of respiration and metabolism could be seen. The theory behind this was that if there was life on Mars, then the microorganisms present in the soil would take nutrients and release radioactive carbon out in the form of gas. However this did not happen. The reason for this could be that the cells of possible life on Mars may contain hydrogen peroxide.
Both landers under the Viking mission were destroyed between 1980 and 1982. Although they are still present on the planet.
