Five New Martian meteorites Discovered

NASA/JPL image
scientists believe they've found an additional five meteorites that originated from the planet Mars. The new rocks were discovered during recent expeditions to Antarctica and the deserts of the Middle East and Africa – the best places for discovering the precious objects from space. This brings the total number of known Martian rocks to 24, and will provide researchers with additional specimens to analyze for evidence of past (or current) life on Mars.

The new crew of the International Space Station spent another day in the sunshine on Friday when Commander Yury Onufrienko and Astronaut Dan Bursch completed a six-hour spacewalk. During their time outside the station, they installed six thruster deflectors and several experiments onto the exterior of the Zvezda Service Module. The deflectors will contain the exhaust from the station’s thrusters so that it doesn’t contaminate the rest of the station.
