New Delhi: In a new study, an attempt has been made to find answers to questions like how Life on Earth started on Earth and evidence of life on Mars. According to the study, a comet took life on Earth and Mars in the early times of the solar system. Researcher Charles Woodward of the University of Minnesota (Researcher Charles Woodward) of the US has expressed such a possibility.
How much carbon was there on earth
According to Charles Woodward, there is no strong evidence that the Earth must have had enough carbon at the time of its formation, which is necessary for life. In such a situation, there may be a possibility that carbon comet may have been brought together.
Comet Catalina was studied in a study based on data from the German Aerospace Center and the US Space Agency NASA’s joint project Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA). When it passed close to the earth in 2016, it was observed. With the help of an infrared instrument installed in SOFIA, the carbon present in its tail was detected. The comet emanating from the Oort cloud is formed on the outer side of the solar system.
Previously there was no carbon on the earth
In the early times of the solar system, the temperature of planets like Earth would have been so high that carbon would have disappeared on its own. There was a lot of carbon on Jupiter but due to its gravity, it could not reach other planets at that time. According to the researchers, Jupiter would have brought carbon to Mars and Earth through comets.
Asteroids bring life?
Earlier scientists have believed that life on Earth may have started due to the collision of Asteroids. Researchers said that these space rocks must have fired different material towards the amino acid like guns and the molecules that formed with their falling into the water started to form life.
