    SUMMARY: Scientists believe there may be chlorophyll, a substance used by plants to extract energy from sunlight, located near the landing site for the 1997 Mars Pathfinder mission. Scientists analyzed the spectral signature of the area surrounding Pathfinder's landing site. Although the researchers have stressed that their findings are preliminary, they believe they've found two areas that appear to contain chlorophyll - it could be significant, or it just could be a patch of coloured soil.
