A Martian egg was found inside a meteorite that fell to Earth last year!
Scientists say they finally have proof that there is life on the Red Planet.
Professor Gupta Wickamassa told WWN that the egg was discovered when scientists were examining the inner section of a Martian meteorite that fell into the Arizona desert last year.
Wickamassa said that the rock, which he named Tootie, is rich in carbon and oxygen and stated that it could only have been produced by living organisms.
“This is one of the most exciting moments of my career. We do not know how this egg got into the rocky meteorite, but we are excited by the finding,” said Wickamassa. “The carbon-rich particles are of uniform sizes and shapes and are not relics of some algal species.”
“Tootie made it to Earth without extraterrestrial contamination, or terrestrial contamination.”
Scientists say that the egg most likely blasted from Mars when it was hit by an asteroid fifty years ago.
The egg as examined at the Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology and Fordham University in the Bronx.
“All the indications are that we have found evidence of life on Mars,” PhD student Jacob Weitz, who was working with Dr Wickamassa said.
Weitz and Wickamassa did try to heat up the egg, hoping that it would hatch… but they had no such luck.
NASA has sent a team to Professor Wickamassa’s research facility to examine the egg.
