google your question. Paste this in the google search box:

How are space rocks analyzed for signs of life

or

space rocks analysis signs of life

Change the search words as you start finding the results you are most interested in. Broadly, people look for molecules of life such as amino acids on or in the rock samples, or they examine images from microscope examination of the fine structure of the rock looking for things that might be fossilized microorganisms. Your google results will provide you with many examples and discussion.

Good luck!
