Methane-less Mars

Hey Space Placers,

   The results are in from Mars and Curiosity says Mars is Methane-less - my words, not hers.

  This is a surprise and a disappointment. Surprise because previously reported data from US and International scientists had detected Methane and a disappoint as the presence of Methane could be an indicator of life. These previous data sets came from observations made from orbit and Earth.

Curiosity is capable of detecting low levels of Methane and the absence of such detection means that Mars has very little Methane. Read More About It Here:
