The Eternal Search for Life in Mars

Tracing of gasses liked to biologically related activities in mars would soon be triggered with the launching of the new EXOMARS ORBITER which is expected to be near mars within the next few days. The primary reason for this search could be explore the possibilities of life sustaining elements on this planet. NASA reportedly stated that it could find traces of methane around the planet, further fuelling the speculations of life. No solid evidence has been produced so far by the scientists and space researchers in this regard so far. Many missions have already been launched for detecting the presence of water within the inner layers of Mars’ land surface. They could lead to the probability of establishing “human colonies” in mars in the future years!

Landing on Mars

 The first known landing on Mars started with the Viking expedition in 1976 July. Viking 1 has successfully sent vital data and information from the surface of Mars over many decades. It worked for more than 2300 days, travelling on the varying conditions and analyzing all types of soil, rock and other samples.

Viking was loaded with several analytical and research equipment which could perform studies into the existence of life. Most of the studies have been centred on the chemical reactions which take place in the Mars soil due to its interaction with life. There are a lot of differences between the organic chemical reactions which results from lively species and the inorganic reactions that happen due to interaction of chemicals. The scientists are still divided over the outcome of studies related to chemical reactions on the Mars soil.


Microbial Life on Mars

After failing to find life on the surface of Mars, the scientists are now turning their attention to the probable existence of microbial life within the inner layers of Mars’ surface. There have been widespread speculations that this experiment could lead to positive results. The baffling feature of this research is the “firm belief” expressed by NASA about the existence of life on Mars.

If you start probing deep into the research, you may be surprised to learn about the reasons for NASA’s insistence. There have been substantial proofs of radioactive carbon moving vertically upwards in Mars. The same phenomena were observed when similar experiments were conducted with microbial life on earth.

Minerals on Mars

Apart from possible life, there is scope of getting plentiful of useful minerals in Mars which could be sufficient to fulfil the energy requirements of earth for many centuries into the future. However the methods and means of transporting these minerals back to earth from this planet seems to be an impossible task. That could be another reason for NASA to look for life here, so that humans can go and settle in Mars which is said to be simpler and effective in nature. Once any positive results are obtained from the experiments to search for life, the next steps to shift human population onto Mars won’t be far away, say the scientists from NASA.…

See what is cooking at the Grand Old Party Today

The republican senator Benjamin Sasse stirred many hearts when he said “i would not vote for Trump” on October 11 2016. According to reports he is seen as the tip of a large iceberg which is threatening to become a Tsunami for the much publicized Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump. Opinion polls from 240+ republican house members showed at least 85+ people who have reservations about Trump going to polls as republican candidate. Even though official announcements have not been made on this issue, it is believed that Trump has got the wind of changing mood among his party men.  He may be left with two options now, go on a rampage against all those who are opposing him or try and woo them into his side with sustained “Positive” campaigning.

Time is Running Out

Time ticks away without waiting for anyone, no matter how powerful or influential they may be. This is exactly happening with Trump within his own party. Most of the “fear” in the minds of party members could be due to the “harsh approach” that he seemed to have adopted against anyone and anything which he perceives as his “enemy”.

There is another side of the coin which looks quite prospective for Trump. Many feel that it is due to the extent of diversity within the GOP, that the division looks visible. The debate is more concerned with the core values represented by the party rather than about the individuals who wish to represent the republicans in the coming elections. If Trump is able to take advantage of this difference of opinions he could still emerge as the sole nominee for the white house race from the GOP.


Root Causes of the Division

According to reports published in BBC on the 3rd of August, one of the senior party members had described Trump as psychologically unbalanced person. The divisions were clear when Trump reportedly refused to support two of his senior party members for the nomination, thus placing his own name ahead of them in the race. On the contrary the two seniors have reportedly supported the nomination of Trump.

The Aggressive stance adopted by Trump seems to be the root cause of all the troubles that he is creating for himself and his party. Some have gone to the extent of saying that he may be putting the system of US democracy under “threat” with his dictatorship style of functioning and statements. There are also fears of rigging the elections on the 8th of November which could pose serious threats to the process of Democratic election process. Some say that Trump is trying to play the cards of “fear phobia”, especially against the rise of Islamic terrorism and strikes on US soil.

What is Trump Doing

Right now Trump may be too busy consolidating his position for the republican nomination to the presidential election. But he needs to tone down his rhetoric and style of campaigning very soon if he wishes to take the battle ahead into the Clinton camp.…
