Glasgow: (Web Desk) Scientists say a meteorite that fell in Britain last year holds important information about the origin of life and the Earth’s oceans.
Analysis of the space rock that fell from Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, UK, found it to contain 11 percent water and 2 percent carbon.
In a study published in Science Advances, experts said their findings suggest that asteroids played an important role in providing the ingredients necessary for life and Earth’s oceans.
Dr Luke Daly from the University of Glasgow said that during the research, scientists learned how water, which is the cause of life on earth, was formed.
He said the biggest question in the scientific community is how did we get here? Analysis of the Winchcomb asteroid reveals how water reached Earth.
He said scientists will continue to study this asteroid in the coming years and unravel the mysteries of the origin of our solar system.
The Winchcombe meteorite is thought to be a rare rock known as carbonaceous chondrites.
About 3 percent of all asteroids found on Earth are carbonaceous chondrites and have an unchanged chemical composition dating back to the formation of the solar system, more than four billion years ago.
Analysis of the asteroid fragment revealed the presence of cosmic water in the minerals of the meteorite. This water was formed during a chemical reaction between rock and liquid in the early stages of the solar system on the fragment’s home planet.
Chemical analysis showed that the composition of this water is very similar to the composition of water on Earth. In addition, these samples were found to contain amino acids, which are an important component of the origin of life.
