NASA has reportedly uncovered a significant finding on Mars, leading to speculation the U.S. space agency may hold evidence of past life on the Red Planet.
“This data is gonna be one for the history books. It’s looking really good,” geologist John Grotzinger of the California Institute of Technology, who said that NASA’s Curiosity rover has uncovered exciting new results from a sample of Martian soil recently scooped up and placed in the Sample Analysis at Mars (SAM) instrument.
It remains unclear exactly what NASA has discovered on the planet. The space agency is reportedly conducting various tests to confirm data streamed from Mars to Earth.
Speculation over the potential finding comes just after the U.S. space agency announced a series of major findings regarding the surface of Mars and its atmosphere.
