NASA is eyeing the 2030s to put the first human boots on Mars, but a scientist suggests the American space agency may have already sent forms of life aboard its Perseverance rover to the Red Planet.

NASA is eyeing the 2030s to put the first human boots on Mars, but a scientist suggests the American space agency may have already sent forms of life aboard its Perseverance rover to the Red Planet.

NASA and scientists worldwide are continuously working on new protocols and innovations to ensure microbes do not contaminate space – and specifically make it to Mars.

Mason and his team conducted the investigation by extracting DNA from clean rooms, which were then sequenced to better understand what kind of microbes are living in the facilities.

'In JPL's clean rooms, we found evidence of microbes that have the potential to be problematic during space missions,' wrote Mason.

NASA's Mars 2020 mission will search for signs of ancient life on the Red Planet in a bid to help scientists better understand how life evolved on Earth.

A second mission will fly to the planet and return the samples, perhaps by the later 2020s in partnership with the European Space Agency
