Discovery NotesThe sample was taken from the top portion of mud. The mud was located in the shade, on ASU campus. The mud was wet compared to the surrounding dirt since there was a leaky hose nearby.
Naming NotesThe name came from the video game series 'Metroid' since the game is set in space and I just really like it. I wanted to name it after Ripley from Alien but that was taken, and Metroid was influenced by Alien so it worked out.
