NASA 's space rover may have just found evidence of life on Mars

The NASA rover Curiosity, which is approaching its one decade anniversary on the Red Planet this year, might have given boffins something to celebrate - the discovery of one of the key components for life as we know it - Carbon

The Curiosity rover blasted off from the USA's Cape Canaveral in November 2011 before jetting through the inky blackness of space for around 10 months, touching down on Mars in August 2012.It touched down in the massive Gale Crater, which it has been roaming for the whole of its stay on Mars.
