Nitrogen is not detected in ancient biological materials such as fossil insects in Miocene Amber; Cambrian Trilobites from the Wheeler Shale or cyanobacterial filaments from Karelia," he writes. "Consequently the absence of nitrogen in the cyanobacterial filaments detected in the CI1 carbonaceous meteorites indicates that the filaments represent the remains of extraterrestrial life forms that grew on the parent bodies of the meteorites when liquid water was present, long before the meteorites entered the Earth’s atmosphere." It's not the first time that a scientist has claimed to have found fossils in a meteorite. In 1996, NASA scientists said they'd identified fossilized microbes in a meteorite believed to have originated on Mars. But that evidence was widely disputed - as, no doubt, these latest claims will be.
