This is a story about how some people in the scientific community think that the water on Earth may have came from an asteroid. This is a very interesting hypothesis because it would mean that all life would have originated from space as life requires water to be sustained. It strongly backs up the panspermia hypothesis, which would mean that we are all descended from very primitive aliens.
