Cometery Panspermia!

Fossil diatom

Fossil diatoms in a new carbonaceous meteorite

We report the discovery for the first time of diatom frustules in a carbonaceous meteorite that fell in the North Central Province of Sri Lanka on 29 December 2012. Contamination is excluded by the circumstance that the elemental abundances within the structures match closely with those of the surrounding matrix. There is also evidence of structures morphologically similar to red rain cells that may have contributed to the episode of red rain that followed within days of the meteorite fall. The new data on “fossil” diatoms provide strong evidence to support the theory of cometary panspermia.

You can find the pdf of the entire study here.

I am so excited with these news! Spread the word! It’s a huge win for science 😀

  1. It is positively thrilling to be able to stare the idea of god in the face, and simply declare:
    We ‘re aliens
