Ancient meteorite offers evidence that life could have existed on Mars, says researcher

Is Martian meteorite a hint of life on Mars?

Carl Agee, director and curator at the University of New Mexico’s Institute of Meteoritics, and his team of researchers have identified a new class of Martian meteorite that fell to our planet and probably came from the Red Planet’s crust and surface environment.

According to a statement from the University of New Mexico, this finding could be a “once in a lifetime discovery.”
