DNA survives critical entry into Earth's atmosphere
The genetic material DNA can survive a flight through space and re-entry into the earth's atmosphere—and still pass on genetic information. A team of scientists from UZH obtained these astonishing res...
Did life’s building blocks fly to Earth and Mars on solar winds?
A new study suggests that the Sun's ionic wind can drive the formation of water on asteroids, moons, and even space dust -- and that could explain how life first got started.
Researchers claim that life arrived on Earth via asteroids and comets, but not in the way you think
A forthcoming study from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory claims that supercomputers simulations of asteroid impacts predict the formation of some of the most crucial organic compounds for life.
