Trace Gas Orbiter sniffs out alien farts

A spacecraft has been launched to find life on Mars and it sniffs out alien's farts.

The craft, which was made in Europe, has been built to pick up the gas methane, which could be a potential sign of life on the Red Planet.

The gas is typically created from the fouling of animals such as cows and from humans when they have wind.

The Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) was launched into orbit by a Russian Proton and will be up in space for seven months as it sets out on a 300 million mile journey to the planet, according to several reports.
