The atmospheric fragmentation of the 1908 Tunguska Cosmic Body: reconsidering the possibility of a ground impact
The 1908 June 30 Tunguska Event (TE) is one of the best studied cases of cosmic body impacting the Earth with global effects. However, still today, significant doubts are casted on the different
Extraterrestrial sedimentary rocks on Earth
This concept article discusses the possibilities for identifying sedimentary-origin meteorites. The paper concerns (i) the macroscopic candidate for sedimentary meteorite in the epicenter of the 1908

Geology of quartz and hydrated silica‐bearing deposits near Antoniadi Crater, Mars
[1] The only area on Mars where crystalline quartz has been identified from orbit is near Antoniadi Crater, on the northern edge of the Syrtis Major shield volcano. However, the method of quartz
Pebbles on Mars
The observation of conglomerates by the Mars rover Curiosity provides the most definitive proof yet of ancient river flow, and provides the clearest view yet on the nature of early martian rivers, and should provide momentum for Curiosity's mission moving forward.
A progression of induration in Medusae Fossae Formation transverse aeolian ridges: evidence for ancient aeolian bedforms and extensive reworking
A progression of induration, erosion, and redeposition of transverse and networked transverse aeolian ridges (TARs) has been documented in the Medusae Fossae Formation (MFF), Mars. Cratered and
Sediments from Lake Cheko (Siberia), a possible impact crater for the 1908 Tunguska Event
Cheko, a small lake located in Siberia close to the epicentre of the 1908 Tunguska explosion, might fill a crater left by the impact of a fragment of a Cosmic Body. Sediment cores from the lake’s
Martian Fluvial Conglomerates at Gale Crater
Measurements of the energetic particle radiation environment inside the spacecraft during its cruise to Mars are reported, confirming the hazard likely to be posed by this radiation to astronauts on a future potential trip to Mars.
Quantifying noble gas contamination during terrestrial alteration in Martian meteorites from Antarctica
We investigated exterior and interior subsamples from the Martian shergottite meteorites Allan Hills (ALH) A77005 and Roberts Massif (RBT) 04261 for secondary minerals, oxygen isotopes, Ar‐Ar, and
Examples of Martian Sandstone: Indurated, Lithified, and Cratered Eolian Dunes in MGS MOC Images
Introduction: Eolian dunes are created from grains transported in wind by saltation and traction. Under martian conditions, as on Earth, the particles involved are typically sand-sized (62.5Ð2000 μm)
