The result no new life but several people died and others fell extremely ill with respitory problems.

If I recall correctly, the alleged Mars meteriote turned out to not be evidence of Martian life, but was reported as such in haste. It seems they love building up our hopes just to dash them!
Due to extremesz in temperatures and radiation concerns, I can't see how this could happen, to be honest. Not by accident, anyway.

Things like spores which are essentially weightless are not going to attain velocities upon hitting an atmosphere to acutally burn up. I think they would gently float through space not on a commet but on there own, and upon atmospheric entry, they would be feather like and float at low speeds. -just a theory. I only believe the dust-like spores could escape the earths atmosphere because, well dust from south africa is found in florida. Reletive escape velocity physics for near weightless objects, I would think would be different. Very interesting thread, and props to the late Terence McKenna for all of his work, notably the mushroom evolution talks.
