An introduction to Panspermia

thumbnail

The rule behind panspermia is that life started outside of Earth and went to our planet, finding a neighborly atmosphere in which to flourish and in the long run develop into life on Earth. 

Panspermia is an old idea, going back similar to the idea of scientific classification when French students of history Benoit de Maillet recommended that life on Earth was the consequence of germs “seeded” from space. From that point forward, specialists from Stephen Hawking to Sir Francis Crick (who relinquished his initial help for the RNA world theory) have believed that life on Earth started away from this planet.
