Early Mars atmosphere 'oxygen-rich'

Early Mars atmosphere 'oxygen-rich'

Mars' atmosphere could have been rich in oxygen four billion years ago - well before Earth's air became augmented with the gas.

That is the suggestion put forward by the author of a study in Nature journal, which outlines an explanation for differences between Mars meteorites and rocks examined by a robot rover.

Dr Bernard Wood said the idea fits with the picture of a planet that was once warm, wet and habitable.

But other scientists were sceptical.

Perhaps billions of years ago Sun activity changed and therefore forced Marsian atmosphere, water and life to move towards Earth :-)
