San Diego CA (SPX) Jan 11, 2007
On Monday, NASA announced $750,000 in funding for development of an
instrument to detect signs of life on Mars proposed by a scientist at
Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego.
The instrument is designed to provide the most rigorous analysis possible
for the past and present existence of biological compounds on Mars' surface,
according to Jeffrey Bada, a professor at Scripps and lead investigator on
the project team.
