There's more at Popular Science about the claim that extraterrestrial life has been found in a meteorite. This article is worth reading. I like the comment by biologist PZ Myers :

“I'm looking forward to the publication next year of the discovery of an extraterrestrial rabbit in a meteor. While they're at it, they might as well throw in a bigfoot print on the surface and chupacabra coprolite from space. All will be about as convincing as this story.”

In other words, it is much ado about nothing (Yes, that's also from Shakespeare).
