4.6 billion year old space rock reveals where water on Earth came from! you also know

Where did the water on earth come from? Is the answer to this question hidden in the meteorite that crashed on a driveway in Britain? A new analysis published on November 16 in the journal Science Advances has tried to explain this theory. The 4.6-billion-year-old space rock fell in front of a house in Winchcombe in February last year. It is said to contain water, which is very similar in chemical composition to water found on Earth. This fact may shed light on where the water on our planet came from. Did water reach the earth through meteorites?

Scientists have named the meteorite that crashed last year as the Winchcombe meteorite. Researchers at the National History Museum in London examined this space rock. they found That it contains water similar to the water on Earth. This study of scientists supports the theory, which says that the Earth has got a huge reservoir of water due to asteroids.

Ashley King, the lead author of the study and a researcher with the museum, told The Guardian that meteorites such as Winchcombe provide good information about Earth’s oceans. This suggests that asteroids were the main source of water on our earth. Researchers will continue to work on this sample for the next few years. They are expected to get many more details. This is also expected to reveal the origin of our solar system.

one before research Similar information came to the fore. Scientists say water may have been brought to Earth by asteroids from the outer fringes of our solar system after analyzing rare samples collected during a nearly six-year Japanese space mission. Researchers were examining the material brought to Earth from the asteroid Ryugu in the year 2020 to shed light on the origin of life and the creation of the universe.

The rock and dust weighing 5.4 grams (0.2 oz) was collected by a Japanese space probe, “Hayabusa-2”. This probe landed on that celestial body and fired an ‘impactor’ on the body’s surface. In June this year, a group of researchers said they had found organic material that suggests amino acids, some of the building blocks of life on Earth, may have been made in space.
