Martian meteorites found on Earth
Today’s Video of the Day from the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) describes the discovery of Martian meteorites on Earth.
According to officials at NASA, the meteorites had been blasted off Mars by a large impact event.
NASA scientists enlisted the help of experts at the ARL to analyze a Martian space rock sample known as “Black Beauty.”
The X-ray scanning tools used in the ARL can create high-resolution 3D images that give scientists a non-invasive look inside of materials.
