The planet Mars is half the diameter of Earth with 1/3 of Earth's gravity. It has a thin atmosphere and weather that includes dust devils and massive dust storms.
Meteor impacts on Mars can launch rocks into space which make their way to Earth in the form of meteorites. These meteorites are identified by studies of their chemistry.
