A team of scientists from the University of Michigan and Johns Hopkins University in the United States have created a scale of microorganisms on Mars.
The team has discovered more than 2,000 of these microorganisms are common on the red planet.
These are microorganisms that can be found in rocks, soil and water.
The research was published online by the journal Science.
The researchers said the study will have an impact on the search for life on Mars and on the future of life on Earth.
“Our study is the first to quantify the abundance of micro organisms on Mars,” said lead author Eric S. Sussman, a doctoral student in the department of biological sciences.
“For a long time, we have believed that microorganisms were found in the soil, but we were never able to prove that.
Now, we know there are some microorganisms living on Mars, and we have found them in rocks and in water.”
The study is a collaboration between the University and Johns, and it was supported by NASA.
Sommers study found that the microorganisms found on Mars have the potential to survive on the planet.
The study shows that the abundance and diversity of micro-organisms could be important for the survival of life in the Red Planet.
“It will make us rethink how we deal with these problems on the Red Moon and on Mars where life may be present,” said co-author Daniel J. Meeks, a Ph.
D. candidate in the University’s School of Life Sciences.
The microorganisms can survive in soil on Mars because they can grow in water, and that water can have a low pH (acidity) and therefore a low oxygen concentration, which makes them easier to tolerate.
But the study found there were some other types of microfungi found on the surface of Mars that are very toxic.
These include a type of microbe that lives on the top of rock that is toxic to bacteria and a type that lives in soil.
The type of microbial life found in Mars’ soil is a “microbial analogue of the soil on Earth,” said Meeks.
“We are learning that life may have been present on Mars for a long, long time and may even have existed on Mars long before life was on Earth.”
The researchers studied a variety of Martian microorganisms including fungi, bacteria and archaea, and found that most of them have similarities with living microorganisms in Earth.
However, some are more different.
For example, some types of microbes were more common in water than on Mars than on Earth, and some of these differences are due to the different chemical environments.
The most striking differences are in the micro-organism’s ability to grow and to thrive in the Martian soil.
For instance, a micro-bacterium found in some of the Martian micro-elements was found to grow on soil in high concentrations.
In other micro-fungal communities, the life form was found in higher concentrations on the rock surface than on the soil.
Microbial life also thrives in different habitats on Mars as well.
On Mars, life is found in a very different environment from on Earth where life is common.
“On Earth, there is a lot of water on Mars that is extremely alkaline, so the life that thrives on that water has an advantage because it can withstand the alkalinity,” said Sussmans co-lead author David J. Cascio, a graduate student in Meeks lab.
“In Mars, the water is quite acidic and it doesn’t have a lot to do with oxygen, so microorganisms have an advantage.”
The new study is only the latest study to find that Mars has microorganisms.
In February, researchers from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory found a microbial community on Mars called “Enceladus,” which is believed to be the largest moon of Jupiter.
Mars has an abundance of the types of life found on Earth and the researchers said that the new research will provide more evidence to support the existence of life elsewhere on the Earth.
Maks study is one of the first studies to document how these microbes evolved on Mars in an effort to determine how Mars may have influenced the diversity of life.
This research is one example of the important work being done by the Mars Science Laboratory team to understand the microbe community on the Martian surface, said Maks.
“These are the first signs that life exists on Mars.”
Somms study also suggests that the diversity on Mars may be influenced by the planet’s proximity to the Sun, which is when life forms evolve.
The new research shows that a microorganization on Mars might have evolved to adapt to this changing environment and to live in a different way than a microorganisms from Earth.
