Martian meteorite processing cabinet at the Johnson Space Center Since 1997, martian meteorites have been processed in a dedicated cabinet in the JSC meteorite lab, due to the possibility that there are organic or other compounds that are specific to these samples, and to minimize the effects of handling under less clean conditions.
