Panspermia is a scientific hypothesis. According to google, it is “the theory that life on the earth originated from microorganisms or chemical precursors of life present in outer space and able to initiate life on reaching a suitable environment.”


So according to this theory, no living organism on Earth has an earthly origin. Which means we all have something “unearthly” within us, and this sounds interesting. It is said that the life on Earth emerged soon after the bombardment period, because of which there was a heavy fall of various meteors and asteroids. The previously living organisms became extinct and the new life was started with these heavenly bodies.


The hypothesis refutes Darwin’s theory of evolution which changed the way of thinking about life in the 19th century.
