A meteorite found in Antarctica could lend weight to the argument that life on Earth might have been kick-started from space, scientists are claiming.

Everything the earth is made of was originally floating free in space.

Of course asteroids and meteorites brought material to the earth, that is what the earth is made of. A butload of meteorites.

Sorry but i get tired of these articles such as a boldie brought something to the earth.

As for life it most likely started in the crust near very warm areas then gradually migrated all over.

Yeah this one is kinda underwhelming, but panspermia really makes a lot sense, given how fast life emerged on earth after it just cooled down.
