Unlocking The Mystery About Life On The Moon

Does this answer the old-age question?

Although it may seem improbable if you look at the moon today, the age-old question about whether there was ever life on the moon may have just been answered.

As we all know, the moon is arid and devoid of air, no magnetic fields, and waterless, except for those frozen in craters at the pole. It wouldn’t take a scientist to conclude that the moon is as hostile to life as you can get.

Actually, life may have existed on the moon 4 billion years ago.

Recent studies show that at roughly the same period when life was starting on Earth, the conditions on the surface of the moon was a potential paradise for microorganisms. Scientists from the Birkbeck University of London and Washington State University suggest that during the early period of the moon’s life, the lunar surface may have been habitable to organisms.

When the moon was only a billion years old, it spewed huge amounts of superheated gas from the underground magma, enough to produce an atmosphere. The steam may have condensed and created a pool of water on the surface of the moon, a perfect condition for organisms to thrive.

Another theory that supports the possibility of life on the moon is the fact that stray meteorites might have sent rocks with bacterias from the Earth to the moon. There is concrete evidence about the presence of rocks found here on Earth that match those rocks found in Mars. Since meteorites can travel from the red planet to the Earth, then it would be much plausible for the Earth’s rock to land on the moon with bacterias on board.

To finally put the age-old question about the possibility of life on the moon to rest, scientists have proposed further exploration and dedicated experiments including collection of moon samples as well as digging deeper on the moon’s surface.

Maybe, just maybe, we might find the key to unlock the mystery of life on the moon.

Astronauts Explain Real Reason Why We Never Made It Back To The Moon

Now we know why!

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” proclaimed American astronaut Neil Armstrong when he became the first human being to step on the moon’s surface back in July 20, 1969.

The whole world witnessed the historic moment in amazement then and now many years later, we are left to wonder why we’ve never made it back to the moon. Although the last official manned landing on the moon happened in December 1972, no one has since returned.

Of course, people couldn’t help but ask why – especially since we now have advanced technology compared to what we had back in the days. ...

Science Explains Why Pregnant Women Often Have Strange Dreams

Ever noticed how dreams seem to be spookier and more vivid when you’re pregnant? Here’s why!

As if having bad dreams weren’t terrible enough, it seems they get stranger and happen more intensely when a woman is pregnant. Have you ever noticed this, ladies?

NASA Had Evidence Of Life On Mars 40 Years Ago But Accidentally Destroyed It

The evidence may have been burned by mistake back in the 1970s.

For the longest time, people have wondered if there truly is life on Mars. Now reports are telling us that although NASA's Curiosity Rover has found evidence of ancient organics on the Red Planet, the discovery may have been delayed by a previous error. There are speculations that the organization found organic molecules almost 40 years ago but unfortunately, the evidence was destroyed before it could be studied.

The Curiosity Rover has been on Mars since 2013 but the rover only recently gathered organic molecules from sedimentary rocks this year. Needless to say, NASA was extremely excited with the discovery, which included seasonal changes in atmospheric methane. However, there is a possibility that these revelations may have been found by the Viking mission during the 1970s.

Curiosity is credited for being the only rover that has discovered ancient organics on Mars.
