    NASA announced that the Allan Hills 84001 meteorite, thought to originate from Mars, may contain evidence of traces of primitive life-forms from Mars. The meteorite was found in Allan Hills, Antarctica on December 27, 1984, by a team of U.S. meteorite hunters. Using a scanning electron microscope, some scientists believed they had found fossils of bacteria-like lifeforms. The announcement of possible extraterrestrial life caused considerable controversy.
