Precursors To CH4 Life (The Methane Detection Scandal)
First, a VERY INTERESTING POLICY THAT I FOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The OFFICIAL NASA POLICY ON “HOW TO DETECT LIFE ON MARS”! (AS of 31 January 2001);
“If any methane is detected, there’s a very good chance life exists on Mars”
“The British Beagle 2 lander is set to touch down on Mars in 2003, and its primary aim, like the Viking landers, is to look for life. This time, the
Beagle 2 has been armed with an entirely new set of tests for life.
One relatively easy way to tell whether life has existed on Mars in the past is looking for the remains of micro-organisms. These remains will be
composed of organic material that is composed of carbon compounds. However, carbon compounds can be produced by other methods than biochemical
reactions (which is one of the reasons why scientists dispute the fact that ALH 84001 showed there was life on Mars). Fortunately, by looking at the
different isotopes of carbon that make up the carbon compounds, you can tell whether they were produced by life, since organisms use the ‘lighter’
carbon-12 preferentially over the ‘heavy’ carbon-13.
By burning carbon compounds that are taken from rocks on the surface and examining the carbon dioxide that is produced, scientists will be able to
determine the isotopic composition of the carbon, and so discover whether life existed (this will be carried out by an incinerator and a mass
The one experiment that will attract the greatest attention from the public is the search for methane in the Martian atmosphere. Methane is solely
produced by biological processes, and is quickly destroyed by light. Therefore, if any methane at all is found in the atmosphere, we can be almost
certain that life exists on Mars right now. The equipment used to perform this experiment has already proven its worth in helping us understand the
process of global warming, and perhaps it will make similarly ground-breaking discoveries on Mars.”
Viking 2 Lander DETECTED CH4 in “Labeled Release” Experiment!
“Biology experiments detected strange signs of activity in the Martian soil - akin to microbes giving off gas.”
“The LR experiment moistened a 0.5-cc sample of soil with 1 cc of a nutrient consisting of distilled water and organic compounds. The organic
compounds had been labeled with radioactive carbon-14. After moistening, the sample would be allowed to incubate for at least 10 days, and any
microorganisms would hopefully consume the nutrient and give off gases containing the carbon-14, which would then be detected. (Terrestrial organisms
would give off CO2, carbon monoxide (CO), or methane (CH4).)”
The Results of the “LR”;
“The gas exchange experiment did not use radioactive-labeled nutrients; instead it used ordinary nutrients and tested for the creation of oxygen or
methane, which would be expected if plant-like organisms were present. Finally, the gas chromatograph heated the soil and tested for the emission of
The results were mixed. While the pyrolitic release, labeled release, and gas exchange experiments tested positive, the gas chromatograph found no
Beagle, joins the “Club”;
From an article in July 2001;
“Outfitted with the most sophisticated analysis system built to date, "Beagle 2 far exceeds what Viking was doing," Gibson said. Among its
abilities, equipment on the lander can spot the presence of methane. Detecting methane would point to what amount to a Martian organism's
"exhalations," a product of metabolism, he said.
"Beagle 2 has the potential of answering the life on Mars question," Gibson said.
Finding that methane signature would also shore up the notion that Mars may harbor a subsurface biota, Gibson said.”
“Beagle 2 was designed to sniff out traces of methane on the surface, and look for other evidence of life. The gas was detected by Beagle 2's
mothership, Europe's Mars Express spacecraft and by telescopes on Earth at concentrations of around 10 or 11 parts per billion. On Earth, methane
released by bacteria in the ground or in animals is found in the atmosphere at concentrations of 1.7 parts per million.”
Methane, as I said (all along), is the “Holy Grail” of Life Detection on MARS.
NASA agrees with me, for once!
Can you understand this Science, you piece of #?
