Hi Tom and all,

Besides this find of a meteorite on Mars, some of the robot explores
there have found other meteorites in the past. Since Mars has such a
thin atmosphere, the meteorites don't get ablated like they do during a
fall here on Earth. Seeing the meteorites there on Mars, they are more
like they would have looked when they were floating around in space, a
rougher look.

Also one robot (can't remember which) on Mars ground into some of the
rocky material and found they very much resemble some of our Martian
Meteorites that have landed here on Earth. Exciting stuff for sure.
