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

Abstract

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
