Extremophiles on Mars can survive for thousands and thousands of years

Considered one of Earth’s hardest microbes can survive Mars, which has been dormant below the floor for 280 million years, new analysis has revealed. These findings elevate the chance that microbial life should exist on the Pink Planet.

Deinococcus radiodurans, nicknamed the Conan bacterium, is likely one of the world’s most resilient microbes, in a position to survive radiation sturdy sufficient to kill some other identified life type. Experiments have proven that if Conan micro organism or the same microbe existed on Marsit may well survive 33 ft (10 meters) under the floor, frozen and desiccated, for 280 million years.
