Quote:Quote:How can man proof the meteorite is from Mars? You asked for "proof", and Rick gave you "evidence". They aren't the same thing, but proof is something you simply don't expect or get in science. We have compelling reasons to conclude that the meteorites are from Mars, and until/unless a better and contrary hypothesis becomes available, that's the conclusion we operate on.

Quote:Generally speaking, for some Martian meteorites, scientists have analyzed microscopic pockets of trapped air inside the meteorite specimen. The components of this trapped air matched the composition of Martian atmosphere as measured by our rovers on Mars (Sojourner, etc).
