This research has revealed that 67P / Churumov Gerasimenko (67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko) Life in a comet All the necessary elements are present for.
Comet contains elements necessary for life
Studies of the European Space Agency’s Rosetta expedition showed that 67P / Churumov Gerasimenko (67P / Churyumov-Gerasimenko) comet contains a very important element phosphorus for life. The research, led by astrophysicist and software engineer Esko Gardner with researchers from Turku University in Finland, is published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
In this, the elements necessary for life have been told. The elements necessary for life are called CHOPS, which include carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur. A mixture of these six elements make up most of the biological molecules of the earth.
How did life come to earth
Scientists had discovered elements in comets earlier also. But Phosphorus was like the last part of this puzzle. Researchers have found phosphorus and fluorine in the inner coma of 67P / Churumov Gerasimenko Comet. Both of these elements were found in solid particles deposited by Rosetta’s Ceometry Secondary Ion Mass Analyzer (COSIMA) device just a few kilometers from the comet.
These particles were deposited on the target plates of the device, after which their photograph was taken from a distance. This entire work was controlled from the earth itself. The research release stated, this is the first time that CHOPS elements necessary for life have been found in comet solids. This research is important to discover the answer to the question of how life came on earth. Phosphorus is very important for life on earth.
