Material Discovered Life On Fractions Meteor in Sudan

Scientists managed to find amino acids in meteorites or material life. Scientists did not expect to find this material. This meteorite fell in northern Sudan. "The meteorite was formed by the collision of two asteroids," said Daniel Glavin of NASA's Goddard
"The collision is heating up more than two thousand degrees Fahrenheit (1093 degrees Celsius). The heat was enough to destroy the complex organic molecules such as amino acids, but surprisingly, the amino acid is still there," he added.

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins essential for life. "Find it in meteorites of this type means that there are many ways for amino acids can be formed in outer space, this increases the chance search for life in the universe," said Glavin.

Amino acids are used in many structures, from hair to the enzyme. Life uses 20 different amino acids to build millions of different proteins. The findings of amino acids on this object supports the theory of the origin of life from outer space.

Samples taken to the lab Goddard and Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. "Our analysis ensuring that findings are amino acids," says study leader Jeffrey Bada of Scripps. Sensitive equipment to detect 19 different amino acids in the sample.

Amino acids can be created in two ways as your hand. Life on Earth use the left amino acids, and amino acids were never mixed with the right amino acids. However, the amino acids found in meteorites has a number of varieties the same left and right.

The findings in the Sudan is named 'Almahata Sitta' or 'Station Six'. This finding is very valuable because it is Ureilites which included rare species. The study is published in the journal Meteoritics and Planetary Science.
