[quote:Lucky Charms:MV8yMTE2MDk1XzM1NjgxOTk0XzdGRDFBQTVG] [quote:Anonymous Coward 12774950:MV8yMTE2MDk1XzM1NjgxODg0XzY3MDhGMTI5] [quote:Lucky Charms:MV8yMTE2MDk1XzM1NjgxNzc5Xzk1N0RENjY2] Caution is advised. There appears to be a lot of material yet to be published on the find. No conclusive proof that the rock is even a meteorite... I dunno, I'd be the first person to applaud this find normally, but something seems off. [/quote] what seems off about it.. [/quote] Poor choice of words, my bad. I'm not trying to shout this down, I [i]want[/i] this to be true. However if you read the paper they published, they only assign provisional id to the fragment, I'm a bit ocd about these things and any gap left like that is an entry point for uncertainty. I'm gonna hold my breath on this one, I want to wait until they publish full details of the frag itself. I want 100% confirmation from all angles, watertight, silver bullet. Then and only then will I celebrate. [/quote]
Fossilized algae recently discovered inside a Sri Lankan meteorite could finally prove the existence of extra-terrestrial life, claim the authors of the new paper.
In a recently published article in the Journal of Cosmology titled “Fossil Diatoms in a New Carbonaceous Meteorite”, scientists from the UK and Sri Lanka claim to have found fossilized algae in a meteorite.
The paper alleges that “microscopic fossilized diatoms were found in the sample,” which fell in Sri Lanka in December last year. The finding, the work suggests is a “strong evidence to support the theory of cometary panspermia.” The theory argues that life across planets is spread by meteorites and asteroids. Panspermia suggests that life could have existed on another planet and moved to Earth.
