Short summary of the papers I've read.

The group at JSC who proposed that ALH84001 contains microfossils have developed a new type of test that should be able to distinguish biogenic magnetite chains from non-biogenic magnetite.

In general Mars climate models, a cold and wet early Mars seem to be gaining favor over warm and wet models.
