New milestone in historical research.

Rover U.S. space agency (NASA) who was conducting research on the surface of Mars have scooped soil samples on the Red Planet for analysis. Lab science runs that find colored object which experts believed to be man-made objects.

NASA said that after two and a half months of his mission on Mars, now is the time for Curiosity – rover name it – to test chemical and mineral samples from the Martian soil using an instrument called the Chemin. The instrument is located in the stomach it Curiosity will examine the composition of the soil on Mars.

Researchers at the Earth amazed with the objects, whose pictures sent from Mars by curosity, and believes that there is a possibility that these objects are man-made, such an object is found in early October, which turned out to be the plastic fraction of Curiosity alone.

“Initially we saw some bright spots in the area that has been dug up,” said the scientist in charge of the investigation, told reporters in Pasadena, California, U.S., on Thursday (10/19).

Some researchers believe the objects that are man-made. But after a number of discussions involving NASA scientists and engineers, was born a very strong belief that these objects are genuine from Mars.

The indication lies in the fact that these objects were visible at the bottom of the hole created by the rover shovels. This means that objects that lie beneath the surface of Mars.

Last week Curiosity find brightly colored objects on the surface of the Martian soil. After investigation it turned out to be pieces of plastic objects from Curiosity alone.

A number of experts who know the trial stated that it was a breakthrough and potential solutions to solve the world’s energy crisis.

As reported by foxnews page, a number of scientists working in a small company in the North of England are developing a technology ‘air capture’ and use it as material for creating synthetic gasoline.

The corporate leaders have stated that they have produced five liters of petrol in less than three months in a small refinery in the Stockton-on-Tees, Teesside, England.

The workings of the technology they have is to change the content of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere the air and make it as synthesis gas.

Within two years, they hope to build a large plant to produce more than one ton of gasoline per day.

In addition, they also hope to operate an oil refinery in the past fifteen years.

Until now, the fuel that they produce could otherwise work well.

The scientists also promised that the gasoline they produce free from carbon content and environmentally friendly.
