Prebiotic Synthesis In Open Space

 Russian and Italian physicists working on the accelerators of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna near Moscow managed to simulate the processes that may be compared to spontaneous generation of life in space meteorites.

      The scientists proceeded from the theory that  as soon as all living things are made of proteins and nucleic acids,  these substances could somehow be formed, the most successful conditions for this being created not on planets, but on asteroids and meteorites. The space contains huge amounts of formamide which was formed from hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen that evolved as a result of the Big Bang that formed the universe.

      The scientists found that formamide on the surface of meteorites was exposed to cosmic radiation, which resulted into the processes that scientists called prebiotic synthesis in open space. According to scientists, this can lead to formation of proteins and nucleic acids. These processes were modeled by the scientists on JINR accelerators, speeding up these processes by a huge number of times.
