Two meteorites, one in Texas, one in Morocco both contain life-forming elements

Storms in the Heavens

This article is from the International Business Times regarding two meteorites that landed on earth in 1998; one in Texas, USA and the other in Morocco, Africa.

The secrets stored inside these two meteorites have stayed hidden for almost 20 years; that is until scientists managed to study the chemical-analysis of the them, determining that they contain hydro-carbons, amino acids, and amongst other things: liquid water.

There is also evidence that the meteorites could have emanated from the dwarf-planet Ceres, according to Planetary Scientist Queenie Chan, as it’s thought the salt crystals covering the two bodies could have been deposited on them from water or ice-spewing volcanoes located on Cere’s surface.

You can find the reported findings which were published in Science Advances here:

Though there is no sign of alien life inside these meteorites, these are still two tremendously important finds. Organic matter and liquid water being…

Bolam Lake and the fight that never happened

Bolam Lake, near Belsay is a little slice of tranquillity in the heart of God's Country (Northumberland to the un-initiated). It's the kind of place you go to get out of the city and unwind, to wander along the tree-lined pathways or skim a stone on the lake, leaving all of your troubles behind. Unless you're me, … Continue reading Bolam Lake and the fight that never happened

I'm sure you all saw, or at least heard, about the strange sky over the Northeast of England yesterday (October 16th if you're reading this in the future...).
