The problem I see here is that this entire find, and subsequent handling, of the meteorite seems dubious at best. Why weren't the meteoric analysees published with the original article? Why isn't there any documentation of EXACTLY WHERE the meteorite was found?
I guess we will just have to wait and see, but for now the claim alien life has been found is quite simply false
