Which is usually found in soil, coal, crude oil, stromatolites, microfossils and, strangely, on Earth, in white truffles, the epicenter and loved mushrooms.
For the wild pigs.

His work suggests that an organic process, which probably contains bacteria, may have played a role in the existence of an organic compound in Martian soil.
A researcher at Washington State University, Dr. “We have identified several biological pathways for theophytes that are more likely than chemical ones, but we still need evidence,” said Shulze-Makuch.
“If you find theophenos on Earth, you think they are biological, but on Mars, there are times to prove that it should be a little higher.”
Theophylline molecules have four carbon atoms and sulfur atoms arranged in a ring, and both carbon and sulfur are biossential elements. However, a scientist at the Technische Universität Berlin, Dr. Schulz-Makuch.
Thiophene can also be done by thermochemical sulfate reduction, a process that involves a set of compounds that are heated to 120 ° C (248 ° F) or more.
In the biological landscape, bacteria.
Which existed 3,000 million years ago when Mars was hot and humid, could facilitate the sulfate reduction process and cause theophenis. There are other routes where thiophene is broken down by the bacteria themselves.
The creatures are lazy. They will use lighter isotopic forms of the element, because it costs them less energy, said Dr. Schulz-Makuch said. Organisms vary the proportion of heavy.
And light isotopes in compounds that differ significantly from those found in their basic components, a telltale signal for life. “However, if the next rover returns this isotopic evidence.
I think the test would really need us to send people there, and an astronaut looks through a microscope and sees a dynamic microbe. The team article was published in the journal Astrobiology.
