Submission + - Solar system meteorites could be the source of lif (cosmosmagazine.com)

Artem Tashkinov writes: Recently scientists have reexamined a 100kg meteorite that hit Australia in 1969 and discovered that the rock which originated in the early days of the Solar System or even earlier contains a soup of highly complex organic chemistry. These findings further prove a theory of a primordial life possibly boosted by extra-terrestrial material. The researchers found 14,197 distinct elemental formulas. Taking into account the limitation of the instrument used, the researchers estimate that there may actually be more than 50,000.
