Mars: Basic Building blocks of life

According to the study, carbon present in 10 meteorites, spanning more than four billion years of Martian history, came from the earth and was not the effect of contamination on Earth. Molecules containing big chains of carbon and hydrogen, the building blocks of all life on Earth are one of the main targets of Man's missions to Mars, and key to accepting if life ever existed on our neighbouring planet. With the help of sophisticated research techniques, the team shows the least several of the macromolecules of carbon were indigenous to the meteorites themselves and not infectivity from Earth.

A team of scientists in the Carnegie Institution for Science, found reduced carbon in the meteorites and according to them it was created by volcanic activity on Mars These findings give researchers insight into the chemical processes taking place on Mars and will help aid future quests for facts of ancient or present Martian life.
