Abstract
We review prior studies of chemical and morphological biomarkers in ancient rocks and meteorites and present recently obtained ESEM images of microfossils and nanofossils in-situ in freshly fractured surfaces of Nogoya and pristine samples of Murchison as further evidence of indigenous microfossils in meteorites.
