but something the size of a red blood cell that went through the Earth's atmosphere and took several weeks to collec could easily been contaminated in that time period so the carbon could have been from our own planet, not from Mars.

It would be really cool if it was though!

How do they know its meterorite from Mars? And how does there become a meteroite from Mars here?
How often does Earth send a Meterorite to Mars? I don't see many of our rocks taking off into space, except for maybe that Yucatan impact incident that supposedly killed the dinasaurs... Have they brought rocks back from Mars yet? Is this how they know it was specifically from Mars?


Meteorites of Mars origin are well known and meticulously authenticated. They have exact matches to isotopic components of Martian minerals and atmosphere, and the only way we know this is due to the Mars probes like Viking that have done spectroscopic and petrology analysis on surface rocks on Mars. Each and every solid planet has an isotopic signature that if known, would be used as a marker for material that came from there. The isotopic ratios have to do with how that planet formed, the rations of elements, it's distance from the Sun, it's gravity and many other factors.

We most likely have pieces of Venus and Mercury in our global meteorite database, however we still do not know enough about their isotopic fingerprints to authenticate them. Lately, certain types of achondritic meteorites known as angrites are suspected to be from Mercury, but the only way to tell for sure is to land there and take samples.

While rock samples were analyzed by Venus probes, the caustic, acidic atmosphere was suspected to have corrupted these samples, so we do not really have a good marker for Venus. We certainly have them also from the Moon, as the meteorites that were once part of the moon match identical in isotopic ratios with the rocks that the Apollo missions brought back.

Massive impacts on all the planets have certainly spread material throughout the Solar System. There are likely Earth rocks on Mars, Venus and Mercury. We also have our suspected "Earthites" which are meteorites that have the same isotopic ratio as our good old Earth. These are some of the hardest to authenticate, because science wants a witnessed fall of one of these pieces, before they sign their name to it.

They would most likely be pieces of the Chicxulub impactor that was suspected of wiping out the dinosaurs, as well as remnants of Vredefort (worlds largest impact crater) and Chesapeake Bay (most likely the second largest impact crater) impacts that were also certainly large enough to eject material out of Earth orbit.

Good post there thanks for sharing your knowledge.

I always come back here looking for good posts like the one you made.

AWESOME Z! Thanks for sharing this!

Another thing i have noticed is that in sharing you have not only presented further material for discussion but also extracted, from the woodwork no less, a number of promising comedians. In fact if we could round them up, which shouldn’t be too difficult, which is most obvious, and get them to put on a show.

In their quest to find life they appear to deny the very existence of it themselves and not measure the possibility against the many items of proof even though it has been offered numerous times even on the television networks.
The mere fact that this is an egg shaped rock OR an egg fossil also seems to reduce any form of IQ still remaining and all previous proven existences of life on Mars is temporarily deleted – THIS simply by looking at that picture. WOW

So in short it isn’t an egg it is an egg shaped rosk and thought the are trying to prove life exists they deny it themselves. THIS picture is VERY VERY powerful and should be locked away!
The alternative is they are really trying their damndest to prove Zorgon wrong – it’s their life time ambition.
HAHAHAHA

Anyway you present what you find in the greatest way and how it is interpreted or accepted is sometimes comical to say the least


Thanks again Z!!

Why would they keep it quiet?? Thay have also stated there is a possibility of life on Mars and many reasons why they may STILL be - one of them being methane plumes.



“We think the probability is much higher now based on this evidence.” The bugs that made it may have vanished millions of years ago, leaving the methane frozen under the planet’s surface. But another possibility is that some hardy organisms still survive on the Red Planet, living underground without sunlight and using hydrogen from water for energy. Similar microbes exist on Earth.


But then again you were probably kidding - right? You are a comedian

I suggest one reads the original paper whose link is provided by the op. It's very interesting and clarifying.

Of course if we did invade someone elses planet we'd call it colonization or exploration or peacekeeping anyways


Or 'Operation Shock and Awe.'

ALH84001, another rock from Mars also contained fossils of biological origin.

Many scientists agreed that beyond any doubt, this was indeed life on Mars. However other scientists argued that it may have been contamination from earth (I am not sure how).

Whatever the case, you never heard anything about it on the news ever again, while the last reports on the news were saying that it was still left to be determined. It's strange how such a big finding was never to be heard on the news again.. no new investigations or determinations.

I can't see how nasa is the same as a hoax video...but...nice find anyway...
These dudes are the smartest people in the world...they know what theyre talkin about...is it that hard too believe we are not the only grain of sand in the multiverse of reality's??? even for the simple minded...the universe???
(which would be solar system sized in most as-holes brains) sickeningly disturbing too think some people don't realise,the chances of alien's existing are calculated in the 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999...etc...boring. ..anyway...there isn't enough room for all these 9's in a whole planet of pages...according too science...if you bet on them not existing in a betting parlour...you will lose every time.....
but it's still sad too think people believe this crap...."that they are alone"....even though they have seen animals and stuff of every genre and kind...and they see these statistic's...pathetic human's and their big head's...

And just how big or small is 10 um?


It's 100th of a mm across, an egg
we will see

Exactly why I made the thread I did. Exaggerations, Lies, and Sensationalism serve nothing but to entertain and obscure what we're all really here for. It's like looking at a newstand shelf and seeing all the National Inquirer magazines or just pretty much any magazine these days. And, ATS is definitely cooperating with the sensationalism by insisting on using exact headlines. Anything for clicks...and money...and growth. Won't say more, as I already covered all my bases in the thread. Soon, we'll all be lucky if we can find anything of truth among all the twists and distortions.

STOP posting LIES. It's that simple. No more junk!

Hey Z, I don't question your thread here. My only question is why did they only find ONE egg? It's so small, and you would think if there is one, there should be more.


Good question. Haven't had time yet to follow up on the initial report. I will see if I can find more on that and get back to you

Entertainment.... THAT is all you and most others are really here for. Because if you were here for REAL research you would stop wasting time with silly posts complaining about things and get on with it an show us how its done


As to sensationalism.... a few years ago I was challenged by a skeptic to do serious threads... so I did

I posted two sensational titles and one real research. The real research thread got THREE applauses but only got about 1 page of replies in the same amount of time that the two sensational threads hit over 15 pages with many stars and flags

And ya know what? The skeptic who challenged me NEVER even showed up in that thread. Even a mo once posted that I should do a thread in Martian fossils only to be embarrassed when I pointed him to it


So you guys are your own worst enemy
If the thread is serious, there is nothing to debunk, so you debunkers have nothing to add... and since there is no debunking there are no arguments back and forth and the thread soon dies for lack of inactivity..

So guess what? Your STUCK with sensational headlines
Because you wouldn't have anything to comment on otherwise

I don't think there's any problem proving that life once existed on Mars.

The problem is proving that life still exists there...although really, I'm more interested in finding another Earth within viable transportation range.

It'll be hilarious to watch how long it take before we decide to conquer the planet.


oh, just wait until USA finds a planet rich on oil! i bet they would try to tell us, that the 1 legged, 2cm tall insects living on the planet, are trying to hurt us!!

Well Mars has these black Geysers all over the place... sure look like oil
