Billion-year-old rocks on Earth may hold the key to finding life on Mars, thanks to new findings by a University of Alberta researcher. These ancient rocks make up more than half the Earth’s continental crust and the microbes in the water around them — and how they stay alive for hundreds of millions of year — may demonstrate how life on Mars can thrive under its surface. Hydrogen and sulfate dissolved in the water are vital to these microbes and the new research demonstrates that geological processes create the sulfate, rather than modern surface water bringing it down to the rocks. It was already widely known that hydrogen is generated by reactions between the water and minerals in the rock.
