American space agency, NASA has said that Curiosity, its probe currently on the Martian surface, is not equipped enough to investigate microbial organisms on the red planet.
The remarks came following evidence unveiled this week showed that there is liquid water on Mars. The robot on the martial surface must stay away from possible spots of life on MARS due to the fear that it could spread microbes from Earth, according to scientists working at NASA. A recent discovery pointed out that water not only may have existed in distant history on MARS but it even exists today.
There has been a lot of speculation over the subject and many want deeper investigations but NASA said that the robots currently exploring the planet are not equipped to carry out this investigation. NASA had decided to forgo its microbe-removal standards for hardware visiting MARS years earlier and scientists say that an advanced robot with a higher level of cleanliness is required for any mission to explore life forms on MARS.
Michael Meyer, a scientist for NASA's Mars Exploration Program, said, "Curiosity isn't designed to go to a place that can currently support microbial life. For that we need a higher level of cleanliness," which is more complicated and costly to achieve."
