Hear from an expert on the small iron concretions called «blueberries» and the layered sedimentary rocks that were discovered on Mars by NASA Rovers — and also occur in New Mexico and other parts of the Southwest. Comparisons with terrestrial geology suggest past water on Mars and offer the tantalizing possibility of the development of extraterrestrial life in the past on Mars.
