First of all, that has nothing to do with the post you apparently answered to.

Second, the author of that page is doing things the wrong way; he looked at the photo of the meteorite and then he searched for similar things in biology images. He should first look into geology books and photos, to understand what are the normal and natural things that can be seen on a meteorite, then, when he knew what to expect in a meteorite, he could look for new explanations for things geology could not explain.

By looking first at biology as an explanation of geological features, he may (and most certainly is) be wasting precious time, efforts and resources following the wrong path.

It's more or less the same thing as someone looking at a book written in a different, unknown alphabet. We should learn first what are the characters used in that alphabet to know if that text as something written in a different alphabet.

Like Chinese characters mixed with Japanese characters, someone that doesn't know either characters cannot understand the difference, and if that person starts looking at the Korean alphabet to explain what he/she sees in that book, it will be a waste of time.

The bottom line is that no geologists or mineralogists can confidently identify the structures marked in the figures.
Likewise, no geologists can ascertain what mineral is the "worm" found in world-famous meteoritle ALH84001.

And what about people that are no geologists and no biologists either?

How do you know that, did the geologists and mineralogists said, specifically, that they didn't know what those things are or how they appeared?

Let's first consider the case of ALH84001. Geologists and mineralogists would say they are, or maybe, the broken remains of clays or phyllosilicate (or something else I forgot). However, no one could present a micrograph comaprable to the "worm" in ALH84001. If anyone could, there would be no controversy and NASA's scientist would apologize to all for wasting so much time and money.

The same thing happened with the minute fossils shown at www.wretch.cc...

No one could show a micrograph comparable to those shown above.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by that.


Do you mean that no one could present another geological/mineralogical feature like the one in the meteorite?

That's what I meant--same-shape and same-size material that is from Earth.

Did anyone asked for a comparison for similar features from Earth? I ask because, for a geologist or mineralogist, those features may be understood, so he/she doesn't see a reason to show similar things on Earth examples.

The scientific world has been arguring about the "worm" for over 16 years. No such mineral has ever been found on Earth. I wonder why you cannot see the importance of such a micrograph.

Sorry for not being clear about it.

What I wanted to ask is if the meteorite from which that micrograph was taken was submitted to the same studies and if the results were the same.

Was there a long debate about the features present on that meteorite, with a geological explanation and a biological explanation?

I ask because I don't know the meteorite from the link you posted, so I don't know its "history".

..... most important discovery of humankind on its way....more than ever:


A potentially habitable alien planet — one that scientists say is the best candidate yet to harbor water, and possibly even life, on its surface — has been found around a nearby star.

The planet is located in the habitable zone of its host star, which is a narrow circumstellar region where temperatures are neither too hot nor too cold for liquid water to exist on the planet's surface.

"It's the Holy Grail of exoplanet research to find a planet around a star orbiting at the right distance so it's not too close where it would lose all its water and boil away, and not too far where it would all freeze," Steven Vogt, an astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz, told SPACE.com. "It's right smack in the habitable zone — there's no question or discussion about it. It's not on the edge, it's right in there."

Vogt is one of the authors of the new study, which was led by Guillem Anglada-Escudé and Paul Butler of the Carnegie Institution for Science, a private, nonprofit research organization based in Washington, D.C.

"This planet is the new best candidate to support liquid water and, perhaps, life as we know it," Anglada-Escudé said in a statement.

An alien super-Earth
The researchers estimate that the planet, called GJ 667Cc, is at least 4.5 times as massive as Earth, which makes it a so-called super-Earth. It takes roughly 28 days to make one orbital lap around its parent star, which is located a mere 22 light-years away from Earth, in the constellation Scorpius (the Scorpion).

"This is basically our next-door neighbor," Vogt said. "It's very nearby. There are only about 100 stars closer to us than this one."
