Scientists at NASA have uncovered new evidence that DNA components found in meteorites can originate in space, lending new credence to the theory that life on Earth may have arisen from a pre-existing "kit" of materials delivered via asteroid. The discovery is outlined in a new paper from Dr. Michael Callahan, whose team of researchers closely analyzed samples from 12 different meteorites, using a mass spectrometer and liquid chromatagraph. In their samples, they found traces of adenine, guanine, and a variety of molecules known as nucleobase analogs -- including three that are rarely found on Earth. Scientists have long known that meteorites can contain DNA elements, but were unsure whether these materials actually originate in space. The presence of these three molecules, however, suggest that they do, potentially raising new questions about the dawn of life on Earth, and beyond.

I'm here because my creator made me, I dont care what NASA has to say when it comes to the origin of life, my dna is complex, my fingerprint is like no other, and I have all the elements of the universe within me.

im open minded and believe in religion, im not going to shut out the idea that maybe our dna did come from an asteroid, if that is truely the case then that would mean that wherever the asteroid came from their would have to be life, asteroids belong to god also.

ASTEROID = Spaceship

Think about it. It makes perfect sense.

There is a long held theory in Astrobiology called panspermia , this is another pointer to the undoubted reality that life is widespread throughout the Galaxy .

The story has been posted but not the video

OK, but if life may have came to Earth on an asteroid, then where did the life on that asteroid originally came from?

There still needs to be at least one place somewhere that life spontaneously began.

An alien civilization spreading viruses as nano-robotic terraformers or just nature is some ways the two are indistinct
