Dioxide of the Moon


Scratch 'N Sniff


NASA recently released some disturbing news about that spooky planet Mars. It seems that the red planet is covered with methane gas. That's the same gas that's given off by cows who eat too much brocolli.



"Ix it just me, or is one of these tanks leaking?"


The Mars Express probe reported evidence of methane on Mars way back in 2004, but Nasa's latest discovery has been heralded as the strongest indicator yet that the planet is able to support simple organisms.

The methane gas, which was detected near water vapour, could have been a waste product from organisms called methanogens living in water beneath underground ice, some experts believe.



"10-4, it's much better up here"


According to Professor Colin Pilinger, "Methane is a product of biology. For methane to be in Mars' atmosphere, there has to be a replenishable source. The most obvious source of methane is organisms. So if you find methane in an atmosphere, you can suspect there is life."


At least now we know why the Martians have been so hard to find. They're no doubt extremely embarrassed about this whole thing.
