azoblue passes along a story in the Washington Post, which begins:
“NASA’s Mars Meteorite Research Team reopened a 14-year-old controversy on extraterrestrial life last week, reaffirming and offering support for its widely challenged assertion that a 4-billion-year-old meteorite that landed thousands of years ago on Antarctica shows evidence of microscopic life on Mars. In addition to presenting research that they said disproved some of their critics, the scientists reported that additional Martian meteorites appear to house distinct and identifiable microbial fossils that point even more strongly to the existence of life. ‘We feel more confident than ever that Mars probably once was, and maybe still is, home to life,’ team leader David McKay said at a NASA-sponsored conference on astrobiology.”
