Scientists have found organics from Earth's swamp trapped inside of glass created by a meteor impact almost a million years ago. The tiny pockets, only micrometers across, contain material such as cellulose and proteins. Though the impact glass was found on Earth, scientists say that similar samples could have been thrown into space by this or other blasts, allowing organics to be transported from one planet to another.

So meteorits are the real "starships" that transport life from one planet to another spreading it through the universe. Life that may then evolute to more complex forms if under proper conditions

succedendo l’una all’altra le forme, è sempre una medesma la materia”

He was burned on the stack for these words.

Beware.

Meteorites remind me of seeds being scattered across the universe.

Good way of thinking about it. Its like a bird in the sky dropping unwanted seed creating a weed 4 days after seed was dropped.
Wonder how many newly found weeds have come from out of space.

While this is certainly and interesting story because the organics may be "sealed away" in the glass, and thus have not been contaminated over the eons, this is not the first time organic molecules have been found in meteorites or comets.

The discovery that comets and asteroids that have gone relatively unchanged since the beginnings of our solar system can hold organic molecules (i.e., the building blocks of life) is not a new one.

However, this discovery does open some new doors into the analysis of the organic stuff that was hanging around around in the early proto-planetary dust cloud 5 Billion years ago that eventually became our solar system, considering the stuff in this meteor may be unadulterated. Other similar meteors that have already been discovered may be ripe for new analysis based on this information.

We have a wealth of meteorites to look at for the organic material.... a lot of them in jewelry from gypt. They had a field of glass they chose from for jewelry from a meteor impact as well. I wonder if they ever thought of looking at the ancient jewelry? They are calling it "desert glass" online and you can buy the glass for peanuts from Libya now.

There are a ton of links but:

If true this still means life had to first evolve on a single planet in order to be transported. So if it evolved once, it can evolve, and then this transport theory is no longer necessary.
