Looking for life in all the right places by Michael Jones

2019 QUT Science in Focus entrant

Metal-cycling microbes living deep below the surface of the Earth leave trace concentrations of Uranium (green), Cobalt (blue), and Vanadium (red) in rocks from the Triassic period. These tell-tale signs of past life on Earth are helping scientists working on NASA’s next Mars rover mission better understand how to seek signs of past life on the red planet.
