Nakhla or Nakhal?[edit]

Both spellings are used in this article. Alpheus 11:43, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

Nakhla is correct; I've corrected the article Zamphuor 11:57, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Further question is it "Abu Hommos" or "Abu Hummus". The latter is the only one I can find on Google maps:,30.318747&spn=0.032925,0.064545&t=h&z=14&lci=com.panoramio.all Allmedia (talk) 20:00, 16 May 2010 (UTC)


Yeah, very convenient. No evidence. For me, this story about dog killed by meteorite is BS. --Madcio 11:14, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Inappropriate link removal[edit]

The reference was removed [1] because it was considered "unreliable source". However in my opinion it is a mistake because the source of an apocryphal and unreliable story have not to be reliable. Moreover it was needed in order to account for the "vaporization" and so on. I suggest to restore it or replace with a different source with the same details about the story. -- Basilicofresco (msg) 23:03, 18 March 2009 (UTC)


Could the article explain more clearly how scientists know that the meteorite originated from Mars? — Cheers, JackLee talk 15:11, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

I agree that this is a vital concern, especially the date that it was first surmised, then established, to be of martian origin. otherwise, people reading it will assume that scientists knew in 1911 that it was of martian origin, which is impossible, i beleive.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 16:03, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

Strewn field[edit]

Shouldn't this article be added to the Strewn field category? If yes, the infobox parameter |Strewn_field should be set to "yes".-- Pyramid ion  18:35, 17 April 2014 (UTC)
