I’m An Alien! And You Are Too! (Maybe…)

We may be extraterrestrials after all

London (UK) – Scientists from the Imperial College of London claim to have found evidence that life on our planet did not originate from Earth itself. For the first time, the scientists say, it is confirmed that an important component of early genetic material found in meteorite fragments is of extraterrestrial origin.

We had a lot of space and alien stories lately, with one particular interesting making even the Larry King show. But any of that material could be considered insignificant, if Zita Martins’ claims, a research associate at the Department of Earth Science and Engineering of the Imperial College, are in fact correct. According to the researcher, at least parts of the raw material that are believed to have been required to create the first molecules of DNA and RNA may be of extraterrestrial origin.

Martins and her colleagues said they discovered uracil and xanthine, which are precursors to the molecules that make up DNA and RNA and are known as nucleobases in rock fragments of the Murchison meteorite, which crashed in Australia in 1969. She explained that “early life may have adopted nucleobases from meteoritic fragments for use in genetic coding which enabled them to pass on their successful features to subsequent generations.”

Apparently, the researchers were successful in proving that the molecules came from space and were not a result of contamination when the meteorite landed on Earth. What supports Martins claims is the fact that meteor showers are believed to have been common several billions of years ago on Earth: “Between 3.8 to 4.5 billion years ago large numbers of rocks similar to the Murchison meteorite rained down on Earth at the time when primitive life was forming,” the press release from the Imperial College reads. “The heavy bombardment would have dropped large amounts of meteorite material to the surface on planets like Earth and Mars.”

Mark Sephton, also of Imperial’s Department of Earth Science and Engineering, believes this research is an important step in understanding how early life might have evolved. “Because meteorites represent left over materials from the formation of the solar system, the key components for life – including nucleobases – could be widespread in the cosmos,” he said. “As more and more of life’s raw materials are discovered in objects from space, the possibility of life springing forth wherever the right chemistry is present becomes more likely.”

The findings are published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters.

Wow. I’ve had my own theories about this, but…wow. That’s insane.

Sometimes, People Should Be Smart

April 10, 2008

But usually, people aren’t smart. That’s why I’m here. 

..

….

What? I’m smart! Leave me alone! Anyway, follow this link to learn more about biodiesel, and how it DOES work. Get the message, spread the word.

We have to save this planet somehow.

Saving a Beloved Hedgehog

March 23, 2008

I don’t know about any of you, but I grew up knowing that Sonic the Hedgehog was the shit. He was bad ass. He was a neon shade of blue, had a fox for a sidekick, and fought an overweight nerd who looked like he played waaayyy too much W.O.W. Plus, he collects golden rings, so you just know he’s pimp. Anyway, head over to this page to see the 9 ways in which we can save Sonic and his buddies.

Peace and love

Something That Makes Me Go “Umm…”

March 22, 2008

So, apparently, the White House is destroying thousands of hard-drives from their computers. I won’t repeat the whole story here, for (1) *fear* of plagiarism, and (2) I don’t wanna mess up the story at all. You can read the full article from U.S.A Today here.

I don’t know about this. This seems kind of…weird? Funny? Not right at all? I understand that space needs to be freed and such, but…I don’t think all of this information that is potentially on these hard-drives should just be “thrown away”. Doesn’t seem right.

Peace and love

This is pretty insane….*gulp* Is it wrong that I want to see this live…somehow?

Proudness, R.I.P Mr. Ledger, Idiots From Westboro, And Hopes of Alien Life..PLEASE!

January 23, 2008

So, I’m in a really good mood. I found out the homework I’ve been working on isn’t even due this week. It’s due next week. So, I’m ahead of the game. Go me. AND I found out about half an hour ago that my mom and her husband Jim are quitting smoking! I am SOOOO super happy for them. I’ve been nagging and bugging them for God knows how long, and it’s FINALLY happening!! YAY! I am so proud of them.

As we all know also, Heath Ledger passed away yesterday from an apparent drug overdose. This is truly sad, as he was a wonderful actor and seemed like simply a good person. He’ll definitely be missed. In related news to that, it’s been released that Westboro Baptist Church is going to picket Mr. Ledgers funeral. Why? ‘Cause he played a homosexual in “Brokeback Mountain”. Wow. I hate stupid people. Who do these people think they are? Upright citizens? Followers of God. I tell you right now, and I truly and utterly believe this, that YOU PEOPLE will be the ones to be punished, NOT HIM. YOU! FUCK YOU….These people are assholes, and simply, horrible, horrible people. Fuck ’em.

Apple came out with a new pink iPod Nano…umm..why is this getting so much hype? Who really gives a rats ass? Ya, it’s nice, yadda yadda yadda…don’t care.

Has anyone seen the creepy ass picture of the supposed “person on Mars”? It’s pretty creepy and I REALLY hope it’s an alien. That would be really, truly awesome. ‘Cause they do exist. I know it. It’s just a matter of waiting for them to realize we’re not smart enough to harm them. Heres the pictures:

And here it is closer…

And here it is even closer…

Don’t keep hiding!! Come on down and say hi! Jeez…
