WE COULD BE MARTIANS: Life May Have Come From Mars

Imagine after all this time of looking for life on other planets that we end up being the ones that visited Earth from outer space. There is evidence out there that suggests that life may have started on the red planet and then came to our planet on a meteorite. How can such a thing happen? It's not that far-fetched, or maybe it is, LOL. Volcanic eruptions hurdle the rocks into space and eventually to Earth.


A Martian meteorite found here on Earth showed that there was boron on Mars. According to biochemist Steven Benner of The Westheimer Institute for Science and Technology in Florida. An oxidized form of the element molybdenum, which may have been crucial to the origin of life, was likely available on the Red Planet's surface long ago, but unavailable on Earth. A significant lack of oxygen over 3 billion years ago on our planet would make the presence of molybendum almost impossible. So, it had to come from another planet. Also lending to the theory that life came from Mars is the fact that Earth was completely covered with water and the planet Mars had dry areas, which would allow for higher concentrations of molybendum. Nevertheless the seed may have come from Mars but they would have never made it in the present day Mars environment. Earth these days is a much better place for supporting life.
