The study found remains of this component, key in the formation of life and planets, in a comet, the purest material in the universe.
Comets represent being one of the most pristine materials in the entire universe. In other words, they are the purest and most unaltered so far studied by the astronomers. So it makes sense to think that its components are essential and key to knowing the process of formation of planets. In addition to the stars and other bodies that exist throughout the stellar territory.
Consequently to this premise, scientists of the Queen Mary University from London, they found a key component in a comet. This was is very present within our planet. And also in the interstellar gas clouds, free of dark radiation, reported the Daily Mail.
The building block of life is wisteria, an amino acid that can form within these interstellar clouds. In other words, it does not need radiation for its formation. Born from its purest state, it would be what originates the formation of celestial bodies in the universe.
A key element of training, present on our planet
Glycine is one of the key elements in the proteins that are in the Earth. So it is revealing that they can be generated from the stage prior to the formation of the planets and then last millions of years later.
With these data a group of scientists simulated the process of formation of glycine. They then found that it is possible for the element to form on the surface of icy dust grains, in the absence of energy.
They described wisteria as the « seeds of life » and do not need fertile soil to grow. They are the beginning of existence and are formed in the processes that are already known in the universe.
In the laboratory they were able to simulate the conditions of interstellar clouds, « now we have to go look for them », stated Dr. Sergio Ioppolo of the Mary Queen University.
