This looks to be a huge story, the first evidence of extraterrestrial life, if it holds up. I would remind readers that “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence“. This needs to be confirmed by others in the science community before it can be taken seriously.
This is from a recent meteorite find in December 2012. A large fire ball was seen by a large number of people in Sri Lanka on December 29th 2012, during that episode a large meteorite disintegrated and fell to Earth in the village of Araganwila which is few miles away from the city of Polonnaruwa.
Look at what the electron microscope shows of a sample purported to be from the meteorite:
“Contamination is excluded by the circumstance that the elemental abundances within the structures match closely with those of the surrounding matrix.“You can prove that a sample is contaminated, but you can't prove that one isn't. Contamination is very important in my line of work, and the question is not whether a sample is contaminated, it how badly it is contaminated. One diatom in a meteorite is a trivial fraction. Remember Fritz's first law of science: Half of science in the media is wrong, and the other half is exaggerated.
