Life after shock: the mission from Mars to Earth

By C. Meyer, D. Stöffler, J. Fritz, G. Horneck, R. Möller, C. S. Cockell, J. P. de Vera and U. Hornemann


Extract from introduction: The minerals of the Martian meteorites collected so far indicate an exposure to shock waves in the pressure range of 5 to 55 GPa [1]. As terrestrial rocks are frequently inhabited by microbial communities, rocks ejected from a planet by impact processes may carry with them endolithic microorganisms, if microbial life existed/exists on this planet
