Mysterious oxygen on Mars


Scientists working on the 5-year data collected by Curiosity revealed that the changes in oxygen levels on Mars were different than expected.

While the researchers continued to deal with the mystery of methane gas on Mars, oxygen has now started. The amount of gas seems to rise and fall at random, and scientists don't know why.

Scientists who studied the data collected by Curiosity, who worked in the Gale crater on Mars, observed a change in methane-coupled oxygen that could not be explained by environmental factors. According to an article published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, scientists say this change in oxygen level would mean much more water than expected in the atmosphere of the planet, or the carbon dioxide would break down very slowly to form oxygen.
