Submission + - Comet delivered microfossil supports Panspermia (

onyxruby writes: "On December 29th of last year a comet exploded over Sri Lanka. When examined by Cardiff University one of the comet samples was found to contain micro-fossils akin to plankton. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center tested additional samples with similar results. The research paper was published in the Journal of Cosmology.

In practice this means that the argument that life did not start on Earth has gained additional evidence."
