More Evidence of Life on Mars

This mornings Australian had an article on more evidence of life existing on MArs, at least in the past. Re-examination of the Martian meteorite ALH84001 by the McKay goup suggests that the magnetite grains found in the meteorite really are of biogenic origin. The abstract of the paper is here, and it is discussed over at Spaceflight Now and Universe Today.

Personally, I think the evidence that the magnetite is from organisms is now very strong, but we still have a way to go to be fully convinced.
