Astrobiologist Richard B. Hoover has discovered evidence of microfossils that resemble bacteria in fresh (so they couldn’t have become contaminated later) slices of the interior surfaces of 3 carbon-filled meteorites. After looking at them under an electron microscope, he has determined that they resemble bacteria found on Earth. His conclusion? These are not Earthly contaminants but are the fossilized remains of living organisms which lived in these meteors, which are rocks that impacted Earth from space. The incredible implication of this discovery is that life is EVERYWHERE, and that life on Earth may have come from other planets.
Sometimes asteroids and meteors can come mighty close. A 14-year-old German boy survived a direct hit by a meteorite after it fell to earth at 30,000 mph. Gerrit Blank was on his way to school when he saw "ball of light" heading straight towards him from the sky. The tiny, red hot piece of rock hit his hand before bouncing off and creating a crater foot wide in the ground in front of him.
When time slip expert Starfire Tor joined Whitley on Coast to Coast AM on January 9, one of her predictions for 2011 was more meteor strikes. Her prediction has come true already: In Oklahoma, people recently star a "big ball of fire" streaking across the sky. It glowed slightly green, probably because it contained copper. The meteor was also seen in Mississippi and Florida.
Why we live in a left-handed world! – Flash back three or four billion years: the earth is a hot, dry and lifeless place. Without warning, a meteor slams into this endless desert at over ten thousand miles per hour. We’re all terrified that this might happen again and destroy life on earth, but it may have been what planted the seeds of life here in the past.
