Keywords : magnetic mineralogy * hematite * Mars
Subject RIV: BN - Astronomy, Celestial Mechanics, Astrophysics
Impact factor: 3.021, year: 2011
New experiments with analog rocks that mainly contain hematite indicate the likely presence of a stronger magnetic phase besides hematite in the outcrop rock formations found on Meridiani Planum, a phase which was hitherto not detected by other measurements (such as Mössbauer) on these rocks.
