Very, very interesting.

This should shake some bottles up.

A basic amino acid found in space...

The question still arises, though non living to living.

Rather like individuals I would imagine. There is after all only one you.

Considering I am not all that enamored with "Ockham's Razor" how would I know?
I stand with Einstein when he offered this anti-razor: "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."

My jury's out on that theory sometimes.

Then how did it wind up in space? Hey, where's the rational science posters?

I take it you are infering that I am neither?
Just because I don't jump on the scientism bandwagon and spout the same rheoric doesn't mean I am not rational or have a grasp of scientific concepts. I would argue that since I don't it is strong testament that I am both. But to answer your question...
How did the martian microfossils get to Earth? We know certain extremophiles here on each could survive in space. All it would take is something to blast them into space.

Getting past the infering
, I haven't heard any explanations as to how this amino formed and found just the right conditions on one planet out of millions, let's say.

Speaking of extremophiles, it's also strange that some would say there has to be H2O to sustain life.

If only Carl Sagan was still alive. He would have loved this (and many of the other recent discoveries)!

RIP.....
