A mysterious spike of methane picked up by the Curiosity rover two years ago has yet to reoccur.

Methane in the atmosphere of Mars could indicate the presence of microbial life on the Red Planet, a fact that was not forgotten when a huge spike of the gas was picked up over the course of several weeks back in late 2013 and early 2014 by NASA's Curiosity rover.

If the Rover isn't near the same area it was when the spike occurred, how can NASA be sure? Maybe the spike was regional or just a release akin to a volcano gassing on Earth.

If I'm not mistaken, the rover indicated this anomaly at location "x" then moved to location "y" for other experiments, upon which it did not find this anomaly.

Perhaps at some point the rover should return to location "x" and perform another sample.
