No Need for Sample Return from Mars

There is no need to waste huge money to collect and return samples from Mars, period.
What is needed is simply to ask an anatomist to examine thin sections of Martian meteorites under a microscope. There are many meteorites that originated from Mars (note 1). Those Martian meteorites contain numerous organics (note 2) and fossilized cells and tissues (note 1). An anatomist can easily identify numerous fossilized cells and tissues (note 1) in the Martian meteorites. A biochemist can easily find numerous organics and macromolecules (note 3) in the Martian meteorites. It is easy to prove the fossil tissues in the Martian meteorites are not contamination from Earth. Evidence for the above claims:

We have Paul Anderson here periodically as a contributor. He has friends studying samples of Martian meteorites. In those initial sample images and study there were items looking suggestive and similar to objects in rover images.
Perhaps his knowledge and friends results allowed isolating the objects for chemical analysis.

Modern technology allows nano-sized material to be examined both by mass spectrometers and by electronic microscopes on Earth. In such cases, biochemical results (molecule level composition of samples) can be linked to nano-sized morphological images.For example:
