Abstract

A report on the environmental conditions of the martial surface and Earth during early years of their history was presented. The search for geochemical evidence of past life via sample return from Mars was focused on investigating the chemofossil record in ancient water-lain sediments. The identification of earliest Archean sediments of aqueous origin and banded iron formation (BIF) were also discussed.
