Similar rocks on earth to what Perseverance is studying were run through similar test equipment to what Perseverance is using and the similar equipment couldn’t see life. (Perseverance will probably need Mars samples with more life to see life.)

Welcome to r/science! This is a heavily moderated subreddit in order to keep the discussion on science. However, we recognize that many people want to discuss how they feel the research relates to their own personal lives, so to give people a space to do that, personal anecdotes are allowed as responses to this comment. Any anecdotal comments elsewhere in the discussion will be removed and our normal comment rules apply to all other comments.

I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically. Please contact the moderators of this subreddit if you have any questions or concerns.
