NASA’s Curiosity rover has uncovered signatures of an environment on the red plant that may once have been habitable. In two separate studies on data collected by the Mars rover over the last few years, scientists have identified an abundant source of organic matter in the ancient soil, and traced some of the planet’s atmospheric methane to its roots. The findings could help to guide the search for ancient microbial life and improve our understanding of seasonal processes on Mars.
