Life Found at 2,400m Below Earth’s surface and implications for Life on Mars & Religion



By @ShaunyGibson – Used to be @ ShaunyNews  Via:

I did an article 21st August this year on NASA/Science finding Plankton have been found living on the exterior of the (ISS) International Space Station. I think we can say with 100% positivity life can and does find a way to survive in any environment we dare to look. Deep in the sea in small lava fishers, 1000’s of feet down in Ice on both poles. The article I did was astonishing as this one is If live can survive in the vacuum of space then can we assume it is everywhere? How rude of us as a species to think we are the only life in a Universe that has TRILLIONS AND TRILLIONS of Suns and TRILLIONS x TRILLIONS more planets and moons. Life also deep under the sea bed, under tons of ice then we can presume life is rife in our Universe. When we apply logic to any story we see the reality that we are shown. The implications on Religion I am unsure about. Surely if God created Man in his image and over 4 Million other species we can safely assume whoever created life or be it a fluke or chance, it is there, it is on Mars and was found on a comet earlier this year. To discover life can exist in the vacuum of space is one of the biggest Scientific discoveries in many generations of our species. That article there is ‘Some’ form of life on Comet 67P that has been beamed back to Earth from the Philae lander

Life uncovered by the deepest-ever marine drilling expedition has been analysed by scientists. The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) found microbes living 2,400m beneath the seabed off Japan. The tiny, single-celled organisms survive in this harsh environment on a low-calorie diet of hydrocarbon compounds and have a very slow metabolism.

The findings are being presented at the America Geophysical Union Fall Meeting. Elizabeth Trembath-Reichert, from the California Institute of Technology, who is part of the team that carried out the research, said: “We keep looking for life, and we keep finding it, and it keeps surprising us as to what it appears to be capable of.”

The IODP Expedition 337 took place in 2012 off the coast of Japan’s Shimokita Peninsula in the northwestern Pacific. From the Chikyu ship, a monster drill was set down more than 1,000m (3,000ft) beneath the waves, where it penetrated a record-breaking 2,446m (8,024ft) of rock under the seafloor.

Sluggish ways

Samples were taken from the ancient coal bed system that lies at this depth, and were returned to the ship for analysis. The team found that microbes, despite having no light, no oxygen, barely any water and very limited nutrients, thrived in the cores. To find out more about how this life from the “deep biosphere” survives, the researchers set up a series of experiments in which they fed the little, spherical organisms different compounds. Dr Trembath-Reichert said: “We chose these coal beds because we knew there was carbon, and we knew that this carbon was about as tasty to eat, when it comes to coal, as you could get for microbes. “The thought was that while there are some microbes that can eat compounds in coal directly, there may be smaller organic compounds – methane and other types of hydrocarbons – sourced from the coal that the microbes could eat as well.”

The experiments revealed that the microbes were indeed dining on these methyl compounds. The tests also showed that the organisms lived life in the slow lane, with an extremely sluggish metabolism. They seem to use as little energy as possible to get by.

Other worlds

The researchers are now trying to work out if there are lots of different kinds of microbes living in the coal beds or whether there is one type that dominates. They also want to find out how the microbes got there in the first place. “Were these microbes just in a swamp, and loving life in a swamp, because there is all sorts of carbon available, oxygen, organic matter… and then that gets buried?” pondered Dr Trembath-Reichert. “It could be that they didn’t get a chance to escape – they couldn’t exactly walk out. So is it that they were there to begin with and then they could maintain life? “Or were they like microbes that were able to travel down to those depths from the surface?”

The discovery of vast ecosystems of microbes deeper and deeper underground is causing scientists to reassess the role that these organisms play in the carbon cycle. Because these organisms take in hydrocarbons and expel methane, a greenhouse gas, as a waste product, they may be having a greater impact on the system that governs the Earth’s climate than was previously thought. The findings also have implications for the hunt for life on other planets. If life can survive in the most extreme conditions on Earth, perhaps it has found a way to cope with harsh environments elsewhere in the cosmos.

Everywhere we look, even in the harshest environments, life seems to find a way to survive

India’s Mars bound ‘Mangalyaan’ among best inventions of 2014

Mangalyaan is among the 25 'Best Inventions of 2014' listed by Time magazine that are "making the world better, smarter and-in some cases-a little more fun."

New York: Mangalyaan has been named among the best inventions of 2014 by Time magazine which described it as a technological feat that will allow India to flex its “interplanetary muscles.” “Nobody gets Mars right on the first try. The US didn’t, Russia didn’t, the Europeans didn’t. But on September 24, India did. That’s when the Mangalyaan …went into orbit around the Red Planet, a technological feat no other Asian nation has yet achieved,” Time said about Mangalyaan, calling it “The Supersmart Spacecraft.” Mangalyaan is among the 25 ‘Best Inventions of 2014’ listed by Time magazine that are “making the world better, smarter and-in some cases-a little more fun.”

Developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation, the Mars spacecraft cost India just USD 74 million, less than the budget for the multi-Acacdemy Award winning science fiction thriller film Gravity. Time said at that price, the Mangalyaan is equipped with just five onboard instruments that allow it to do simple tasks like measure Martian methane and surface composition. “More important, however, it allows India to flex its interplanetary muscles, which portends great things for the country’s space programme and for science in general,” Time said.

The list also includes inventions by two Indians for developing an exercise space for prisoners in solitary confinement and a tablet toy for kids.

Nalini Nadkarni, forest ecologist and college professor helped develop the ‘Blue Room’ with Snake River Correctional Institution in Oregon for inmates in solitary confinement, who for 23 hours a day see nothing but a tiny, white-walled cell, an experience some research suggests heightens mental illness and makes prisoners prone to suicide attempts and violence. Last year, officials began letting some of them spend their free hour in a first-of-its-kind Blue Room, an exercise space where a projector plays video of open deserts, streaming waterfalls and other outdoor scenes. Nadkarni says the imagery is designed to calm prisoners, “much in the way we walk through a park” to relax. Former Google engineer Pramod Sharma developed ‘Osmo’, a tablet toy that gets physical. Sharma got the inspiration when he saw his daughter playing with the iPad, but did not want her to be glued to the tablet all day long.

The toy, which debuted in October, has helped Osmo raise USD 14.5 million in capital and is now being sold in the Apple Store. The other inventions are a reactor developed by aerospace company Lockheed Martin that could realize nuclear fusion, Apple’s smart watch that besides telling time, can send messages, give directions, track fitness and make wireless payments and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3, a “hybrid” that bundles laptop into a 12-inch tablet and can run desktop apps.

The Mars Question – The Black Knight Satellite. What if………….

The Face and City on Mars, the first signs?

The Face and City on Mars, the first signs?

I have an interest in almost everything, I don’t believe Aliens visit Earth and I don’t believe in Ghosts and I CAN PROVE Man landed on the moon. Logic comes into play with a lot of things. This blog here is about anomalies on Mars. I have been keeping a folder of strange things people are catching that are being beamed back to Earth from Mars. When any Mars Rover sends  a data package back to Earth anyone can grab it, it’s just being able to decrypt it, and many can. I get sent a TON of images in my email. Things that at first glance look “Strange” But they could just be rocks. The human mind is programmed to see a Human face in any mysterious anomaly

So I will share 10% of the images I have, these are probably the best ones. And if you are interested, maybe you can say “WOW” or “Rock” I am 50/50. Could it be we Humans were once very technologically advanced and lived on Mars? And we ruined Mars are we are with Earth? Could this explain the Black Knight Satellite in Polar Orbit above Earth no country has said “It was ours” when it was discovered in the early 1900’s? Also, the face on Mars, here is the reality below

The reality of the Face on Mars

The reality of the Face on Mars

The Black Knight satellite has me spell bound, in a polar orbit, something we Humans can’t achieve, going from Pole to Pole, here are a few images and a small video. Could it be we came to Earth in this? I am asking. Religious people will have none of this, but I ask you have an open mind. Please




Very hard to debunk this one

So Mars, here are some images, you decide, I am not sure. But could it be we came from Mars in that huge satellite above? Do your own research, I just love these subjects and having an open mind with things. Science can prove something’s but not all things, the Bible guesswork (In my opinion) I did a blog on a new Bible that was found, no interest

Video 1st 




















Just to note this was once covered





What happens when a place is left, this is Chernobyle in Russia, 30 years on. Imagine thousands of years?


images (1)



I seen this as it was decrypted, there is a hole there. Rock or something?





Again, once covered. From space we seen more. Egypt

This is one of the best, it was on the NASA website for a few minutes.
