It had dropped to Earth in July last year but has only now been located in December 2011 in the form of fragments – what Phobos-Grunt failed to bring has come to earth of its own. It is the 5th known and recorded evidence of material to have landed on Earth from the distant planet Mars.
The specimens have been examined by scientists of NASA among others and they have had no hesitation in declaring that these originated from the Red Planet Mars.
These specimens varying in sizes from 2 Kg to 7 Kg have been sold by the founder to different persons and the price he got is, apparently, much higher than the price of gold – nearly 10 times as much.
As one of the experts has said – these are free samples from Mars, only – one has to pay the local dealer to acquire it.
