On An Asteroid From Space We Found The Origins Of Terrestrial Life
The Hayabusa 2 probe found several types of amino acids on an asteroid.
Why does life exist on Earth? If you have never asked yourself this question because you are too busy shopping and thinking about bills, I understand you, but know that science is thinking about it for you and will try to update you on the latest findings concerning this topic. For example, you should know that recently the Japanese probe Hayabusa2 has found more than 20 types of amino acids on an asteroid. This means that organic compounds are present in these space objects. Amino acids are essential for all living things we know to make proteins, a process that is the basis of life. So what? One theory suggests that the early Earth was too hot to support these molecules and that they would’ve later arrive thanks to pieces of asteroid fallen from space. So life on Earth could come from space. Japan’s science ministry says several teams of researchers are analyzing these materials and will publish more detailed papers in the coming weeks.
