Antarctic meteorites have provided additional specimens of poorly represented meteorite types and of a few types that were previously unknown.Meteorites from the meteorites have been collected there.
Meteorites are objects composed of rock and sometimes metal which are derived from various solar system bodies, and after traveling through space land on the surfaces of other solar system bodies (notably Earth, but also the Moon and Mars, and no doubt other worlds).
’s surface, many that fall in Antarctica are frozen into its ice sheets, which slowly flow from the centre of the continent toward its edges.
In some places, patches of ice become stranded behind mountain peaks and are forced to flow upward.
A Martian meteorite is a rock that formed on the planet Mars and was then ejected from Mars by the impact of an asteroid or comet, and finally landed on the Earth.
Of over 61,000 meteorites that have been found on Earth, 132 were identified as Martian as of 3 March 2014 On October 17, 2013, NASA reported, based on analysis of argon in the Martian atmosphere by the Mars Curiosity rover, that certain meteorites found on Earth thought to be from Mars were indeed from Mars.
