Spanish scientists point to 'Curiosity' where to look for vestiges of life on Mars

Researchers find in the Rio Tinto (Huelva) compounds associated with microbes that could also appear in the extremely acidic regions of the Martian surface

While the Curiosity robot was advancing in its journey of 567 million kilometers through space, on the insignificant Earth the geologist David Fernández Remolar sank his boots in the red waters of the Tinto River, in Huelva. And in the sediment samples that he collected those days could be some clues to show that the human being is not alone in the universe.
