New Scientist reports that this find proves to researchers that Mars already contained water much longer than originally thought.
The stone called ‘Black Beauty’ has much more water than 111 other Mars meteorites that have been found.
According to scientist Andrew Steele of the Carnegie Institution for Science, that indicates that the rock more than likely was in contact with the water surface on Mars.
The rock’s consistency is made up of volcanic material suggesting it probably comes from a once existing crater lake on Mars.
“The unusually make up of the stone suggest is probably is part of the Mars’ crust,” researchers believe.
According to Scientas.nl, this is the very first time a meteorite has been connected to the Red Planet’s crust.
