Panspermia is the hypothesis that life exists throughout the Universe, distributed by space dust, Panspermia studies concentrate not on how life began, but on the methods argues that the pre-biotic organic building-blocks of life originated in space, .

In MarchNASA scientists reported that, for the first time, complex DNA and RNA organic compounds of sepsincluding uracilcytosine and thyminehave been formed in the laboratory under outer space conditions, using starting chemicals, such as pyrimidinefound in meteorites.
The information content of life, even in its simplest form, had to be panapermia with on a superastronomical scale.

A trend to accept at least some of these conclusions began just after the announcement in by NASA scientists that they may have found evidence of bacterial fossils in a meteorite that came from Mars.

Astronomical origins of life: He holds the highest doctorate Sc. Probes and instruments have started examining other planets and moons in the Solar System and in other planetary systems for evidence of having once supported simple life, and projects such as SETI attempt to detect radio transmissions from possible extraterrestrial civilizations.
Retrieved 22 July Ultraviolet absorbance of presumably interstellar bacteria and related matters. Publication date Note “Reprinted from Astrophysics and space science volumeNos. The mission will collect cosmic dusts and other particles for three years by using an ultra-low density silica gel called aerogel. These results clearly negate the original panspermia hypothesis, which requires single spores as space travelers accelerated by the radiation pressure of the Sun, requiring many years to travel between the planets.
