The Black Beauty isn't much to look at, but it may hold vast information on the planet Mars. NASA researchers spent a year studying the Mars meteorite, which was found in the Sahara Desert in 2011. What they found from the 11-ounce rock was pretty stunning.
First, it contains 10 times more water than other Martian meteorites that have been found on Earth. Second, it came from the Martian surface and was formed about 2.1 billion years ago. That's a pretty good indication there was some kind of water in the Red Planet's crust way back when.
