Life Possible On 'Large Regions' Of Mars

With higher pressures and warmer temperatures beneath the
Martian surface, Earth-like microorganisms could thrive.

Australian scientists who modeled conditions on Mars to examine
how much of the Red Planet was habitable said that "large
regions" could sustain life.

Charley Lineweaver's team, from the Australian National
University, compared models of temperature and pressure
conditions on Earth with those on Mars to estimate how much of
the distant planet was livable for Earth-like organisms.

While just one percent of Earth's volume - from core to upper
atmosphere - was occupied by life, Lineweaver said their world-
first modeling showed three percent of Mars was habitable,
though most of it was underground.
