God the meteorite

Interesting new NASA study....sure to upset the lunatic fringe.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/03/120309104845.htm


Quote:In the study, scientists with the Astrobiology Analytical Laboratory at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., analyzed samples from fourteen carbon-rich meteorites with minerals that indicated they had experienced high temperatures -- in some cases, over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. They found amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins, used by life to speed up chemical reactions and build structures like hair, skin, and nails.

Previously, the Goddard team and other researchers have found amino acids in carbon-rich meteorites with mineralogy that revealed the amino acids were created by a relatively low-temperature process involving water, aldehyde and ketone compounds, ammonia, and cyanide called "Strecker-cyanohydrin synthesis."

Nah, the win here is for partial panspermia. Abiogenesis happened somewhere otherwise we wouldn't be here.

Damn, nothing is said about the chirality Sad
