New article published on the official news site of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said that since its formation, for about 4.5 billion years, our planet is at least twice could lose its atmosphere. In other words, the Earth's atmosphere this day is not at all what it was in the early days of our home world.

For a long time scientists scratching their heads in an attempt to find out why in the history of the Earth occurred so huge and dramatic changes. And according to research by scientists from MIT, a very common cosmic bombardment could be the main reason for these changes.

In the published article, scientists report that analyzed the large amount of material they have come to the conclusion that our good old planet is losing its primitive atmosphere as a result of the bombing of tens of thoUSAnds of space rocks. And it was about the same period, when formed Earth's natural satellite - the Moon.

Some scientists believe that the Earth is lost virtually all its primary atmosphere she had to face the cosmic body about the size of Mars. However, if a collision did occur at some moment in the history of the Earth, on its surface definitely should have been left "scars".

Refusing to this theory, the scientists at MIT say that the Earth is being bombarded with tens of thoUSAnds of cosmic rubble, the dimensions of which often reached up to 25 kilometers in diameter. In the fall of raised a huge amount of gas clouds. As a result, the gas accumulated so much that these clouds literally pushed the planet's atmosphere into space.

Scientists believe that, despite the fact that many a theory of events may seem crazy, it really could happen. Scientists emphasize that, according to information gathered and analyzed, space rocks were common in the solar system billions of years ago. She was practically filled them. Researchers have even hypothesized that as a result of similar scenarios could lose its atmosphere, Venus and Mars.



The researchers also suggest the possibility that as a result of the bombing on the planet, new gases, which in turn made possible the emergence of life on Earth.
