Mars Meteorite - NWA 998, an Orthopyroxene Nakhlite


“Another scientifically important discovery with NWA 998 is the presence of water bearing minerals within the meteorite.   This discovery strengthens the theory that Mars was once a wet planet capable of supporting life.  The other Nakhlites have evidence of being altered by flowing water but only NWA 998 contains these water bearing minerals.”
