We seem to have new visitor on earth. Mercury meteorite, NWA 7325 green meteorite found in Morocco is from Mercury, and not Mars

There is more on meteorite and asteroids in the days to come. In fact space seems to have come very close to us and now we will be hearing more and more about the space, heavenly bodies including asteroids in the days to come. And to be true the latest meteorite rock found in Morocco seems to have come straight from Mars and nowhere else.

So even before we were yet to come out of the shocking admission by NASA boss that earth was ill prepared to face the eventuality of a direct hit from an asteroid, we were faced with a meteorite from nowhere but Mars. NASA boss had made the admission while briefing the Congress committee merely a week from now and suggested that people should start praying if anything of the sort happened.

To many people this may be very scary scenario, but for a large number of us this is just a matter that should be laughed away as there is no real chance of it ever happening.

Latest reports suggest the green and very beautiful looking meteorite that landed in Morocco in the year 2012 could be from Mercury and nowhere else.

A report while detailing the green rock found in Morocco says, “The green rock found in Morocco last year may be the first known visitor from the solar system’s innermost planet, according to meteorite scientist Anthony Irving, who unveiled the new findings this month at the 44th annual Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in The Woodlands, Texas. The study suggests that a space rock called NWA 7325 came from Mercury, and not an asteroid or Mars”.
