Dr. Barbara Sherwood Lollar said that this water can provide evidence of the presence of life on other planets in the solar system, including Mars.
World’s oldest water
World Oldest Water: The oldest water has ever been discovered on Earth. It has been told about this water that it is 160 million years old. This water has been discovered by Dr. Barbara Sherwood Lollar, a geochemist at the Isotope Geochemistry of the University of Toronto. At present, this water has been kept in Science and Technology museum.
Dr. Barbara Sherwood Lollar said that this water can provide evidence of the presence of life on other planets in the solar system, including Mars. He told that the taste of this water is very salty. This water is 10 times more salty than seawater. Dr. Barbara told that in 1992, she had gone to a mine in a place called Timmins, north of Ontario. It was here that he got this water. The discovery of this water provides evidence of microbial life in Kidd Creek. He said that it can also expose the life present in the inner surfaces of the earth.
What have scientists found in water?
The investigation of this excessive eating water has revealed a big discovery. Scientists have found that chemolythrophic microbes bacteria that thrive in the most extreme environment were able to survive in this water. They told that these microbes must have survived on nitrogen and sulfate. Both these elements are found in the bottom of the sea, where such organisms are found. The discovery of this water revealed that the Kidd Creek mine must have been at sea level first.
What is the discovery of this water from Mars?
Scientists believe that the canadian shield on which this mine is present, is very similar to the surface of Mars. He argued that if life sustaining water can exist 2.4 km below the Earth, then there is every possibility that it can happen on the red planet as well. This is likely to bolster NASA’s pursuit of life on Mars by Rover.
