View Full Version : Methane On Mars?
Apr 6th, 2004, 12:45 AM
Two individual research groups are saying that they're detecting Methane Gas on Mars. Methane is created by Biological organisms and/or volcanoes or volcanic rifts/vents. Methane supposedly breaks down pretty fast so they're speculating whatever is creating it, is continually creating it. Pretty interesting stuff. Here's the Link (http://science.slashdot.org/science/04/03/28/1744254.shtml?tid=134&tid=160)

Still, like the water, not yet definitive proof of life on mars...

Its not definitive proof. They're just saying, the conditions for some sort of life may exist.

But interesting nonetheless.

Canadian scientists are projecting that as much as 3% of all the methane (greenhouse gas) produced in Canada comes from "grazing cattle". . . To prove this, they are now engaging in a study to (ahem) "measure" that amount of, er, 'methane' that say a 'cow' or a 'bull' can produce. . . (I was curious as to how one could go-about collecting 'cow-farts' but I think I'll pass on that. . . ) :cowsleep:
maybe they should 'supplement' the cattle-feed with "Beano?" :eww: :crazy:

I can see they have their priorities straight in Canada. All the important research comes first........

I think the majority of the cow's methane production comes from its fecal material. I think? Sounds like a fun job nonetheless. :D

Correct, in science class, we learnt that our settlers used cow feces as ferteizers for the methane hungry plants like (i forget).

The methane on Mars is most probably coming from the volcanic activity, not from red cows....

Oh... this thread is about Mars?!
