Mars candy and snicker bars?

Is it totally coincidential that the Mars candy bar company and its (the most popular candy bar on the planet) Snicker bar and the Acronym for Martian metoeritics SNC (shergottite, nakhlite, chassignite) pronounced Snick for the 3 major types of meteor localities for the Martians are the Same? I thought so. If you are a Martain fan can you put some SNC photos here? I will try to get a few photos of the LA metoer from the bolide chaser to start it. (Hi Bob) - Matt Boeck

thumbs upcoincidental that polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons found in snicker bars and milky ways are compositionally similar to nebular gasses such as in our own milky way!!

p.s anyone hear about a meteorite smashin up a house in Virginia recently!?...Ill post a follow up with some excellent photos from a Smithsonian intern who investigated the discovery!

It is true, I am the intern that he speaks of. I was at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History when the "Lorton Meteorite" creamed a doctors office in Lorton, VA. I was a part of a team that went down to Lorton, VA to search for other meteorites and as well we stopped by the doctors office. If any of you have seen the local news for the DC/VA/MD area I'm in the background of much of the video clips, taking to other reporters, co-workers at the Smithsonian and USGS staff. On local channel 9 they even walked with us as we searched and I was shown later that night on TV digging in a hole where I was hoping to pull out a meteorite...to no avail. BUT I did have a great time, and an unforgettable experience! I am going back to continue my internship at the end of March... hopefully by then the ownership debate will have settled down. I of course want the meteorite to end up on display at the museum!
Here are a couple photos as well as links to videos and articles regarding the meteorite that fell in Lorton, VA on Martin Luther King's Day 2010.

I think everything is related to outer space. If you think of it, all inner space is part of outer space. I need a Mars bar.B)
