Astronomy is more than an exact science, as every piece of rock can alter everything. It was thought to be right before. Einstein said nothing escapes a black hole, and Hawking proved him wrong. It is time for Mars’ age to be the subject of doubt. It looks it is 15 million years younger. New studies made on the wolfram evidence collected from Mars seem to prove it was formed way later than we thought. Wolfram is also known as tungsten.
We are humans, and that should be enough reason. But we never give too much credit to this argument, so we need scientific proof. There it is: the wolfram evidence that gave proof about Mars’ age might have been the remains form the comets or asteroids that hit the red planet over time.
“Maybe those collisions really messed up our measurements,” says Simone Marchi at the Southwest Research Institute in Colorado.
The age of Mars was under debate in a new study
It was thought that Mars was created during the Solar System’s formation, as the result of a random process of run-away accretion of material from the protoplanetary disk that orbited the Sun. A protoplanetary disk is a rotating circumstellar disk of dense gas and dust surrounding a young newly formed star. For Mars, it was thought that the formation process took only 5 million years.
At least, this is what the Martian pieces that got here on Earth said after the wolfram was tested. But it looks now that those Martian leftovers aren’t precisely Martian, but remains of the asteroids that hit Mars. So, Mars got hit repeatedly by asteroids or comets. The areas of the impacts were impregnated with the alien DNA from the asteroids.
Then, pieces form those places ended up on Earth as asteroids. Scientists analyzed those meteorites and said they were Martian, and later dated the age of Mars. Now, they made some simulations, and they think they were misled.
Of course, this is also an if astronomic clause.
