Caption

Samples of Martian meteorites. These are pieces of the surface of Mars that have been ejected into space as a result of impact events. Eventually these pieces have landed on Earth as meteorites. More than three quarters that have been recovered are Shergottites, ultramafic (high iron and magnesium, low silicate) igneous rocks.
