  • Rensselaer researchers propose new theory to explain seeds of life in asteroids - Douglas Whittet
    dry but scientists have long known that warm wet conditions suitable to formation of some biomolecules the building blocks of life once prevailed One theory of the origin of life proposes that some of the biomolecules that formed on asteroids may have reached the surfaces of planets and contributed to the origin of life as we know it A new look at the early solar system introduces a new explanation of how biomolecules were once able to form inside asteroids Researchers Wayne Roberge and Ray Menzel of the New York Center for Astrobiology propose a new theory based on a realistic model to account for the effect of magnetic fields and solar winds in the early solar system to explain the ancient heating of the asteroid belt Click here for more Twitter Digg Facebook Delicious StumbleUpon This entry was posted by Doug Whittet on September 30 2013 at 12 53 pm and is filed under News Follow any responses to this post through RSS 2 0 You can skip to the end and leave a response Pinging is currently not allowed Comments 0 Related Posts Type your comment You may use these HTML tags a abbr acronym b blockquote cite

  • Rensselaer astronomers study the stuff of future planets in an interstellar cloud - Douglas Whittet
    all existing at temperatures as low as 10 degrees Kelvin A new study published in the September 10 2013 issue of the Astrophysical Journal helps to expand our picture of the cloud by focusing on the solids silicate dust and ices that are potential raw materials for future planets A team led by Doug Whittet and Charles Poteet at RPI used infrared data obtained from NASA s Spitzer Space Telescope and the Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii to search for the spectroscopic fingerprints of these material They found that the silicate particles serve as nucleation centers for the growth of ices that contain not only H2O but also CO and CO2 dry ice and that this can occur in the outer layers of the cloud where there is just enough shielding from the harsh environment of space to allow the ices to survive These results add to the growing evidence that the water and other volatiles needed to form habitable environments on earth like planets are easily formed at the lowest temperatures in prestellar clouds When stars are born inside them the resulting increase in temperature and radiation exposure can drive a different kind of chemistry that can form complex
