Great Martian Comets! Could this book be predicting a possible future?

Meteorites From Mars

OK, there have been lots of meteorites hitting Mars (and Earth) in the past and no doubt there will be more in the future and the latest Comet - Siding Spring - didn't actually hit Mars, although the satellites in orbit round the Red Planet had to take cover on the other side of Mars, away from possible debris from the near miss. But did you know that some of the meteorites that hit Earth have actually come from Mars, possibly pieces of rock thrown off the planet by a meteorite hit there?

Living Material From Space?

Did you also know that some meteorites have been found to contain organic material? Like precursors to living material that COULD develop on Earth?

Book - Evolvere

This is the starting premise for the book, Evolvere, which grabs your attention right from the start and keeps up the pace throughout the book, making it hard to put down. It involves a geology student's find of a Martian meteorite that has to be smuggled out of the country where it was found and which, unknown to him, contains a Martian virus which could help bring about an important breakthrough in human development. Unfortunately for the student and his friends, certain governments already know about this and are using it for their own ends, leading to him being sought by the Security Agencies in more than one country. The ending is also unsettling - prophecy? There are subplots within the book too, one involving the student's marriage breakdown, helped along by plotters and another a secret group outside government. The story blends an understanding of how political decision-making occurs along with the possibility of the political reality and power plays that might really exist behind those policies.
A very good read.

This book does sound like an interesting read to me, too. I would say that in general, the subject matter is not usually of great interest to me as a reader, but the premise piques my interest. Thank you; another book to add to my growing list if "Want to Read."

MegL This sounds like a book I would be very interested in. I am going to write this down and look for it on iBooks. I believe in government coverups and conspiracies. There are many things they do not tell us.

That's interesting. I will have to head over to YouTube and check out that video.

I have no idea whether or not it is on ibooks. The picture has the PP affiliate link attached to it (with approval by admin).

It does sound like a fascinating book. I have no doubt that there is other life somewhere out there.

A very good review. These kinds of subjects aren't my cup of tea compared to others I like better, and there is only so much time, so I probably won't get around to reading it.

That book seems to be pretty interesting. I'll be adding it to my ibook soon :)

MegL I looked in iBooks, it's not there. But it is on Amazon on the Kindle. I have the Kindle app for my iPad. So I can get it there.

This sounds interesting. I usually stick to different genres but I like to expand my world and thinking and this seems like it would get me thinking!
