The viking carbon assimilation experiments: interim report

, : The viking carbon assimilation experiments: interim report. Science 194(4271): 1321-1322

A synthesis of organic matter from atmospheric carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide, or both, appears to take place in the surface material of Mars at a low rate. The synthesis appears to be thermolabile and to be inhibited by moisture.

D. baarsii is a sulfate reducing bacterium, which can grow on formate plus sulfate as sole energy source and formate and CO2 as sole C sources. 14C labeling studies show that > 60% of the cell C is derived autotrophically. Labeling studies with...

The evolution of N2, Ar, O2, and CO2 from Martian soil as a function of humidity in the Gas Exchange Experiment are correlated with the mean level of water vapor in the Martian atmosphere. All but O2 are associated with desorption. The evolution o...
