Astronomers have found the possibility of life on the planet Mercury.
Scientists have discovered a special kind of gas in the clouds floating in the atmosphere, which is almost impossible without the presence of life. After Mars, the astronomers got a glimpse of the possibility of life on the planet Mercury. It is thoughts that microscopic life may be present in the flammable gas in the clouds floating in the sky of that planet.
Scientists have found a special kind of gas in the clouds floating in the atmosphere 30 miles above the back of Mercury, which is almost impossible without the presence of life. They claim that life was once transmitted to the planet, the remnants of which are present in the gas. Scientists believe that the change in the character of Mercury due to warming later made it unsuitable for survival.
Research has shown that for 20 million years, Mercury’s climate has been conducive to life and there has been an ocean presence. But at present, the maximum temperature reaches 450 degrees Celsius due to the excess of concentrated carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of the planet and the almost waterless soil. About 90% of the clouds that float in Mercury’s sky are actually sulfuric acid particles.
As a result of this ultimate unhealthy character of the weather and atmosphere, scientists consider Mercury ‘dead’. According to Professor Jane Greaves, an astronomer at Cardiff University, ‘the possibility of life on Mercury is truly astonishing gives the high levels of sulfuric acid in the atmosphere. But despite all the geological and photochemical methods, we have not yet been able to thoroughly analyze the character of phosphine gas in the planet’s atmosphere.
Microscopic animals produce phosphine gas in low-oxygen areas on Earth.such as in lake sediments and in the interior of livestock. Other ways in which this gas creates. Jupiter and Saturn founding on rocky planets like mercury consider being the determinant of the existence of life.
Greaves said he first saw the existence of phosphine gas in the atmosphere of Mercury in December 2018. It can be seen that there are 20 phosphine molecules per million molecules, in the clouds floating in the sky of Mercury. However, scientists believe that phosphine gas can be formed on the planet from any material other than the known source. According to some of them, phosphine can be formed in the planet’s atmosphere due to volcanoes, lightning and meteor showers.
According to astronomer Paul Reimer, the level of phosphine production is so low and the amount of destruction. It is so great that the probability of life on Mercury may be negligible per thousand. In order to make it suitable for life. Every microscopic organism on Earth has to produce 10 times more phosphine than its capacity, which is unimaginable.
