One person killed, 8 hurt in row house blast and fire in New York's Bronx

Depleted carbon isotope compositions observed at Gale crater, Mars

Carbon isotopic analysis is among the most pervasive geochemical approaches because the fractionation of carbon isotopes produces a natural tracer of biological and chemical processes. Rover-based carbon isotopic analyses of sedimentary rocks on Mars have the potential to reveal modes of Martian carbon cycling. We report carbon isotopic values of the methane released during pyrolysis of samples obtained at Gale crater. The values show remarkable variation indicating different origins for the carbon evolved from different samples. Samples from multiple locations within Gale crater evolved methane with highly fractionated carbon isotopes. We suggest three routes by which highly fractionated carbon could be deposited on Mars, with each suggesting that Martian carbon cycling is quite distinct from that of the present Earth. All MSL SAM data are available at the Geosciences Node of NASA’s Planetary Data System (). All study data are included in the article and/or [ SI Appendix ][1].
