I wouldn't say we've found the life forms themselves, but possibly
indications that life has existed outside of Earth at some point. A paper
presented by Thomas-Keprta et al. at the 32nd LPSC showed, what I thought
at least, was compelling evidence for proof of life in the martian
meteorites in the form of the properties of the magnetite crystals present.
I must put in here that I've been one of the biggest skeptics of all this
life jazz from the Mars meteorites since it first came out, but that talk
did a lot to convince me otherwise (even though it appeared that some
members of the audience were not convinced).
