Hungarian Scientists Claim to Have Found Traces of Life on Mars

Hungarian scientists claimed on Friday to have found evidence of living organisms on Mars after analyzing 60,000 photographs taken by the Mars Global Surveyor probe. The three-man team said the pictures showed evidence of thousands of dark dune spots, similar to organisms found near Earth’s South Pole, in craters in Mars’ snowy southern polar region. “These spots indicate that on the surface below the ice there are such organisms which, absorbing solar energy, are able to melt the ice and create conditions of life for themselves,” biologist and team member Tibor Ganti told Reuters.
