Martian life – Theoretically it is possible

Martian life – Could exist only in the first 600 million years of its existence. At least, so say scientists from the University of Rhode Island. Climate that prevailed at the time on Mars was wet and warm, experts believe. Theoretically, it is therefore possible that life arose here. Unfortunately, over time the planet dry and reigned on the hostile conditions in which they could not survive even the simplest organisms. Team of researchers came to these conclusions based on the analysis of mineral samples from Mars. The change came about. 4 billion years ago and was most likely the result of volcanic eruptions. Since then, the minerals formed without the aid of water and are very rich in iron.

In the journal “Computers in Human Behavior“. Scientists explain this phenomenon by the fact that such emotional, deeply private ascents much more likely to get sympathetic comments – that is something that people crave a particularly neurotic. Besides neurotics likely than others to communicate with friends on “Walls”, instead of sending them to private e-mails. The idea is that such a message is more difficult to control.
