years ago when the atmosphere of Mars is much thicker.
"There is a possibility, Mars has a solid carbon dioxide which can supply carbon dioxide gas in large quantities into the atmosphere during the 'summer' in the recent climate cycles or rock falls billions of years ago," said Matt Golombek, a member of the research team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
Planetary atmospheres can slow the speed of a meteor falling because there is friction. Vehicles NASA, Opportunity, found the meteorite contains metal, which later was named Block Island by scientists, at the end of July.
Block Island about 60 cm long and about 30 cm high, with blue stain. The rock is ten times more
30 cm, with blue stain. The rock is ten times larger than the Heat Shield Rock, the other Mars rock found in 2004. (INE)
