It should be noted that as yet we have only found Lunar and Martian
meteorites here on Earth.
One such Martian meteorite (named ALH84001), found in Antarctica, has been
reported to show evidence of past life on Mars, in the form of tiny
'magnetofossils' embedded in the meteorite. These 'magnetofossils' are
magnetite crystals of a shape and size that are allegedly consistent with a
biological origin (biogenic). But the idea that the ALH84001 magnetite is
really biogenic is very controversial.
