According to this view, there was a change in surface chemistry over time from a less acidic to a more acidic regime. And in the crust, at the depths from which the recent meteorites are probably derived, the aqueous chemistry continues to be dominated by alkaline chemical reactions between igneous minerals and water. Among other consequences, the discovery of phyllosilicates may influence the search for past environments suitable for life, such as fossil hydrothermal systems. Clays may be associated with the origin of life itself, which perhaps started with the formation of complex organic molecules on a clay mineral substrate; their existence on Mars may therefore be a consideration in site selection for future explorations such as the next rover mission, the Mars Science Laboratory, to be launched in 2009.
