They also point to a possible new explanation for the origin of life on earth.

    I find space fascinating...though I have never written a post on it. I used to read a lot of SF when I was growing up but now I guess I read other stuff. also less time to read that I had before...
    but I try to catch every news item on this subject, but I had missed this. When I was younger, why just about 10 years ago I used to keep clippings on eveyrthign to do with science and space and I have that file still.
    I plan to write an SF novel one day...but right now I haven't even finished my first one...!
