Martian Nakhlites are among the most interesting meteorites that exist. They are extremely complex and contain carbonites, the building-blocks of life as we know it.
The Mars rover, Curiosity, landed on the Red Planet on August 5, 2012, kicking off a two-year mission to determine if Mars has ever been capable of supporting microbial life. Perhaps that Earthly vehicle will be the first 'person' to find signs of life on such a desolate planet!
The NWA 6148 main mass is curated in a private collection and I received the balance of the material. I have listed here virtually all specimens other than a few grams of fragments created during the cutting and polishing phase. NWA 6148 is friable so special care had to be used during this process.
