Upon conducting "chemical, microscopic and isotope analysis" of the carbon component they derived several explanations, one being that the carbon was filled in the fissures before Tissint fell from Mars.
"A more likely explanation is that liquids containing organic compounds of biological origin infiltrated Tissint's 'mother' rock at low temperatures, near the Martian surface," reads the report. Another explanation states that the organic matter may have been appeared on Mars when "very primitive meteorites - carbonated chondrites - fell on it."
