The organic Experiment that was temporarily stymied by the stuck Arm would help to determine whether such compounds Are present meanwhile Viking scientists said they now believe an unexpected abundance of oxygen produced from the Martian soil in another of Vikings test cells probably was not the result of life forms the researchers said tuesday the unexplained generation of Gas from a soil Sample had almost ceased a we Are gravitating closer toward a no biological explanation of the Gas production said or Harold p. Klein head of the Viking biology team a but we Are not too per cent sure it s not biological a the strange Gas emission from the soil Sample probably resulted from a chemical process in which surface oxygen released by sunlight decomposed a liquid food added to the soil in the test cell scientists said at first there had been speculation that the emission was caused by some life form breaking Down the nutrient.
