Extraterrestrial life moves one step closer

Last week NASA announced their discovery of evidence that Mars could have once sustained life. The Curiosity rover has found sedimentary rock on the planet containing carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen phosphorus, and sulphur - all the elements important for supporting life as we know it.

This isn't proof that life DID ever take hold on the planet, but coupled with clear evidence for the past existence of running water, non-lethal levels of oxidising chemicals and now the key building blocks of life, it's becoming increasingly likely that life itself will be found - possibly in the upcoming ESA mission to the red planet.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
