A place like Mars: Scientists have found a part on Earth where life is impossible. The position of this part is like the atmosphere of Mars, due to which life here cannot flourish.
researchers have found an aquatic environment on Earth where life chances are zero. The purpose of this search is to get early information about the components that reduce the chances of life. The study, published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution, showed that life is impossible in ponds with hot, saline, highly acidic properties in the geo-thermal zone of Dallol, Ethiopia. There was also no presence of any kind of microbes in these ponds.
Researchers from the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) reported that the Dallol region lies on the crater, the salt-filled volcano. Boiling water and poisonous gases are continuously released from this crater due to hydrothermal activities. He told that even in winter the temperature of this place is more than 45 ° C and it is one of the hottest climate areas on earth.
According to the researchers, there are many brackish and ultra acidic ponds in this area. At a standard of zero (ultra acidic) to 14 (high alkaline), the pH of this space reaches a negative mark of less than zero. In earlier research, it was reported that some microbes are likely to flourish in this difficult environment.
According to researchers, this place was considered like Mars, where the conditions are similar to Mars. Co-author of this study Lopez García said, ‘We tested more specimens this time than in previous research and came to the conclusion that the chances of microbes flourishing in these brackish, hot and ultra acidic ponds are also zero.
