I may have jumped the gun on the above headline, but this is the first step.

Dr. Richard B. Hoover, a NASA astrobiologist claims to have found evidence of fossilized life on meteorites. After traveling for several years to remote parts of Siberia, Antarctica and Alaska Dr. Hoover claims that structures found in CI1 carbonaceous chondrites meteorites are strikingly similar to terrestrial bacteria. 

From the article:
Though it may be hard to swallow, Hoover is convinced that his findings reveal fossil evidence of bacterial life within such meteorites, the remains of living organisms from their parent bodies -- comets, moons and other astral bodies. By extension, the findings suggest we are not alone in the universe, he said.
“I interpret it as indicating that life is more broadly distributed than restricted strictly to the planet earth,” Hoover told “This field of study has just barely been touched -- because quite frankly, a great many scientist would say that this is impossible.”
