Microbes, called extremophiles, can survive even in the harshest conditions — for example, at very high temperatures, acidity and lack of oxygen. From this it follows that life can exist even on Mars, which although is considered the best place for colonization, but still is not the most hospitable place. According to researchers from the University of Illinois, the first alien creatures can be found in the Martian rocks in the form of long pasta.
According to researchers, in the upcoming expeditions to Mars, astronomers may encounter bacteria Sulfurihydrogenibium yellowstonense. On Earth they live in boiling springs, not afraid of ultraviolet radiation and is able to breathe sulfur or carbon dioxide. On the basis of their durability, it would not be surprising that the red planet will be found they, or similar bacteria.
First contact with aliens is the detection of bacteria
Fortunately scientists detect these bacteria will be easy. The fact that when they swim in fast-flowing water, they tend to cling to each other and form thin threads that look like long pasta or dough. Of course, at the moment, the chances of finding on Mars flowing water is negligible, but billions of years ago oceans on the planet was clearly. However, if researchers will find a thready stones, they can be sure that the above bacteria did exist on Mars.
Stones in the form of pasta can be a sign of life on other planets, studied by mankind. Perhaps now living on Earth extremophiles arrived with distant planets, the conditions became too harsh even for resistant organisms.
Aliens can really exist, but our intelligence is simply may not be ready to detect them. This suggestion recently put forward by the representatives of NASA is to read about their theory in our material.
