Martian meteorite may contain evidence of extraterrestrial life

Tissint landed in the desert of Guelmim-Es Semara, Morocco, on July 18, 2011. It was thrown from the surface of Mars by an asteroid collision some 700,000 years ago -- and there is no other meteorite quite like it. The 7-11 kilogram grey rock -- seared glassy black on the outside by the heat of entry, called a fusion crust -- showed evidence of water. It was riddled with tiny fissures, into which water had deposited material.

This material, on analysis, turned out to be an organic carbon compound -- one that was biological in origin. It is not the only meteorite in which organic carbon has been found, but the debate has always centered on whether the carbon was deposited before or after the meteorite in question landed on Earth -- to wit, whether it is terrestrial or extraterrestrial in origin.

A team of researchers studied the organic carbon found in the fissures of Tissint and determined that it is not of this world.

The 'may' part of it always fascinates me. They admit life exist then retract, then say life is almost real on Mars then say we have no clue of water. Then found water proof and say we have no dna..

How do they know it came from Mars?
The ricochet story doesn't seem believable to the layman.

 Quoting: Sikhed


from the article...

the carbon contains a high amount of deuterium, heavy hydrogen with one proton and one neutron in its nucleus -- consistent with the composition of Mars geology. "Such an enormous concentration of deuterium is the typical 'finger print' of Martian rocks as we know already from previous measurements,
