The emission of methane on Mars detected in 2013 by NASA’s Curiosity rover has been confirmed, independently, by an international team of researchers led by Marco Giuranna of the National Institute of Astrophysics and involving colleagues from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology and the Italian Space Agency, thanks to the measurements of the Italian PFS instrument (the Planetary Fourier Spectrometer on board the ESA Mars Express probe), provided by the Italian Space Agency. The team has also identified the possible area of emission of methane detected, in a region of the planet located about 500 km east of Gale crater.
