NASA Says Possible Microscopic Life on Mars

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Scientists have found compelling new evidence of possible ancient microscopic life on Mars, derived from magnetic crystals in a meteorite that fell to Earth from the red planet, NASA (news - web sites) announced on Monday.

An international team of researchers working with a Martian meteorite found in Antarctica discovered magnetite crystals arranged in long chains within the potato-sized space rock. Those chains could only have been formed by once-living organisms, the U.S. space agency said in a statement.
