I was doing some researching and came across this link and not sure if its been listed but I find this to be interesting and also mmmmmm to be weird science. At any rate, NASA must be excited about this and I guess anything is possible these days, Tagish Lake has opals in them, lets see if we can find the fountain of youth next.
Here is the abstract down below
Structures of skeletal muscle fibers are found in three micrographs, which were imaged by Tom Phillips from a thin section cut out of Martian meteorite NWA 998. The morphology, organization, and context of the structures indicate they were the structures of muscle fibers. The micrographs show no cracks for the structures to move from outside the meteorite to their present locations. Therefore, the muscle fiber structures should be indigenous to meteorite NWA 998.
The structures of muscle fibers are found in the meteorite possibly because the parent rock of the meteorite solidified around the fossilized muscle fibers on Mars.
