Wow! DNA in space (GreenYeller series)

Today’s CNN (dated 12 August 2011) has a story with a rather exciting title:

DNA discovered in meteorites.


But the first line reads (emphasis mine):

NASA researchers have found the building blocks of DNA, the genetic molecule that is essential to all life forms, in meteorites, pieces of space rock that have fallen to Earth.

What a letdown!



  1. This has reached a new level of lunacy. Clearly, the meteorites fell to earth and crushed humans, hence why there is DNA in them.
    So straight forward, not sure how or why the scientists missed this.

    • It was not that easy for the scientists, because there was no DNA in them in the first place. Thanks Raoul. 🙂
