Having a geology degree, I understand the science a bit but I'm still amazed by stuff like this. We can find a rock, determine that it is from Mars, determine that it came from the same area on Mars as other rocks we've found, determine it's age and determine how long it's been in transit between Mars and Earth.

Science.
