AFRICA – Scientists believe a meteorite that was discovered in northern Africa is from mars.

It apparently is nearly four and a half billion years old. Scientists have nicknamed the stone “Black Beauty.”

It has 10 to 30 times more water in it than any other martian meteorite ever found, according to scientists.

Researchers also believe it formed during Mars’ first 100 million years of existence.

One scientist says it’s a good place to start looking for evidence of past life on the red Planet.
