Hi Mark and List,

>the better I have read is "The Hunt For Life on Mars"

I agree. I have not seen the book Dr. Gibeon mentioned but The Hunt for
Life on Mars is a very understandable and good read.

It is also part of a 10 meteorite-related book set I have now on ebay (sorry
for the piggy-back, Mark :-)
