Unlocking the Secrets of Mars: Utilizing terrestrial analogs and laboratory simulations to unravel the Martian environment

Science / Ciências da terra

The study of life on Earth can significantly contribute to the development of science related to the habitability of Mars. One potential key lies in extremophile organisms that inhabit environments on Earth similar to those on Mars, such as the iron-rich region of Minas Gerais, the arid deserts of the Atacama, and the icy conditions of Antarctica. The exploration of these environments will yield a collection of microorganisms. These can be used to simulate potential responses to Martian conditions and to test various methods of detecting them under these conditions.
