NASA has found an important amino acid and organic molecule within the atmosphere of a comet. The discovery further supports the claim that these flying object of ice have helped deliver some of the life’s key ingredients to Earth. Perhaps these comets could have been responsible for starting alien life on other planets as well.
NASA FINDS BUILDING BLOCKS OF LIFE
The amino acid glycine as well other essential elements were found in a gas cloud surrounding Comet 67P. While this isn’t the first time glycine has been extracted from dust samples by NASA, it’s the first time that it’s been found in space, naturally vaporized. NASA’s discovery of these “building blocks” support the claim that comets played a significant role in producing life on Earth.
GOD IS A COMET
With evidence of these amino acids and phosphorus, it’s relatively certain that a comet can contain everything needed to produce life. Everything, except energy. When comets drop on Earth, it’s quite possible that the molecule we set free and mobilized. The warm environment on Earth provided the energy needed for the molecules to react. From there, that could be the beginning of life. Surely, the book of Genesis says something about that. Right? Religion aside, NASA knows that comets and asteroids hit Earth pretty heavily in the past. Surely, it’s not out of the question to think that one of these impacts contained the same building blocks that NASA found on Comet 67P. If this was how life formed on Earth, it very well could mean the potential for alien life existence far out in space too.
FINDING ALIEN LIFE STARTS WITH COMETS
The space agency has already determined that there are hundred of potential Earth-like planets out there. If they have a similar source of energy like Earth does, then it’s quite possible that a comet started alien life on these distant planets as well. Alien life doesn’t have to mean futuristic civilizations Star Wars. However, it’s quite possible some form of alien microorganism is thriving somewhere out there.
