In adherents panspermia theory reappeared hope. According to the hypothesis of British scientists from Imperial College London lunar soil can store the secret of the origin of life on Earth.

On the earth itself initially followed by the appearance of life forms, unfortunately, has long erased by geological processes and weathering. But evidence that the original "building blocks" of life were brought to our planet from space, could survive on Earth's natural satellite - the Moon.


According to conventional theory, it is assumed that the simplest forms of organisms appeared on Earth about 3.8 billion years ago. However, scientists can not say how, where and under what conditions they were formed.

There is a theory called panspermia theory, which explains the appearance of life on Earth hit some "controversy" or "building blocks" of life, organic molecules or even entire organisms from space on our planet because of an asteroid or comet. (Here in fairness it should be noted that the theory of panspermia does not remove the question of the origin of life, it simply takes this issue from Earth into space). If the young solar system asteroids or comets were "disputes", it is quite natural to assume that they were supposed to get not only the earth, but also on other planets and Moons. Including the Moon. After all, most of these asteroids fall not only on Earth.

In those early days of our Moon's surface was covered with hot lava. British scientists have wondered: is not whether traces of possible "building blocks" of life destroyed by molten lava? Conducted their experiments have shown that even under a thin layer of solid soil organic molecules perfectly withstand temperatures of molten lava. Even more, hardened lava subsequently "preserves" this organic billions of years, hiding from radiation, solar wind and the Sun's ultraviolet radiation.

The researchers hope that their study conducted in the future serve as a stimulus to search for traces of life on the Moon primary with the new robotic probes and rovers.
