California Meteorite Carried Rare Life Ingredient

This method is pure genius IMO


However, the researchers tried dissolving the fragments in conditions mimicking hydrothermal vents on Earth, the environment often seen in the early Earth that life might have arisen within. Upon such treatment, the rocks released organic molecules not previously detected in similar meteorites. The findings that suggest there are far more organic materials available via meteorite for planetary environments than scientists assumed.


I cannot believe nobody thought of this previously. If the theory of panspermia is possible, then this seems to me to be the first steps toward validating that theory. Perhaps previously tested meteorites should be re-tested using this method? We may find more evidence that was overlooked in older testing.

Your thoughts folks?
