Scientists Confirm Rocks Fell From Mars




This is only the fifth time in history scientists have chemically confirmed Martian meteorites that people witnessed falling. The fireball was spotted in the sky six months ago, but the rocks weren't discovered on the ground in North Africa until the end of December.



Tony Irving of the University of Washington did the scientific analysis on the rocks and said there is no doubt they are from the red planet. Several of the world's top experts in meteorites told The Associated Press that they, too, are convinced.



A Martian meteorite that was buried in Antarctica made news in 1996. NASA scientists theorized the rock showed traces of life from Mars. Even the White House declared it the first sign of life outside of Earth. Years of study since then have led much of the astronomy world to conclude there was insufficient evidence to support the claim.


Wouldn't it be something if earth was "seeded" by microorganisms from Mars? Instead of earthlings, we'd be martians! Instead of looking to the stars for alien life all we'd have to do is look at ourselves.

This could be one of the ways life arrived on earth. You never know.

Right. I think this is described as Panspermia.

Ahh- like the plot in Mission to Mars. Great concept, horrible movie. It would certainly throw the planetary populous into chaos if it were the case.

.....and both of our threads are about a different aspect of the meteorites.
