statistical analyses comparing prismatic magnetite crystals in alh84001 carbonate globules with those from the terrestrial magnetotactic bacteria strain mv-1Here we use rigorous mathematical modeling to compare ALH84001 prismatic magnetites with those produced by terrestrial magnetotactic bacteria, MV-1. We find that this subset of the Martian magnetites appears to be statistically indistinguishable from those of MV-1.
