Our Sun creates Star Water and the Origins of Life?

My research report on Star Water is almost complete, until then let this wet your whistle:

“We have shown that solar wind production of water actually happens,” Ishii told SPACE.com.

The scientists analyzed interplanetary dust collected in the dry stratosphere at an altitude of about 12 miles (20 kilometers). Using flags coated in silicone oil mounted on the wing pylons of NASA aircraft, researchers gathered these particles as they rained down from the sky.

Ishii and colleagues used a state-of-the-art transmission aberration-corrected electron microscope to analyze the surface layers of this interplanetary dust. This strategy helped them look for water inside these particles on the scale of nanometers, or billionths of a meter. (For comparison, a human hair is on average about 100,000 nanometers wide.)

“We were originally looking for solar-wind–implanted helium in the rims on minerals in interplanetary dust particles, and stumbled onto water,” Ishii said.

The scientists detected water in the rims of interplanetary dust particles normally thought of as lacking water.

“We have shown for the first time that water and organics are delivered together,” Ishii said.

These findings could have implications for distant planets and the prospect of alien life.

“The process of solar-wind hydrogen ions reacting with oxygen in silicate minerals is ubiquitous throughout our solar system, and we can expect that any other star producing a stellar wind with hydrogen ions will be irradiating silicate minerals in dust and on airless bodies in its vicinity, also,” Ishii said. “Thus, solar-wind–produced water in dust containing organics can be expected to reach other planets in systems similar to ours.”

Solar Wind Creates Water in Star Dust, Implications for Life from Space - Climate Viewer News
This illustration shows water forming on interplanetary dust particles due to space-weathering from the solar wind. Hydrogen ions in the solar wind react with oxygen atoms in the dust to make the water inside tiny vesicles (blue). This type of water formation likely occurs in other planetary systems as well as our own.

  1. Then, perhaps, is there fossils or life elsewhere? But, isn’t the emergence and maintenance of life a process of radical contingency? That is, is a unique and unrepeatable past totally necessary? Or does life emerge through space like mushrooms when some conditions are present? So, how many conditions are necessary: three, four, trillions, infinite? Only one, water or any sort of God? Is God the word that means infinite conditions, absolute necessity? Anyway, how did the life that emerge in a given conditions resist when switching to a different moment? How does life resist time itself, the effects of entropy? But, is it possible for human beings to recognise a simpler life than their own brain only? On the other hand, beyond likeness, is it possible to recognise a complex life than their brain, is this the extra-terrestrial life that some people are searching unsuccessfully? However, is there an origin of life or would it be as finding a cut in the material history of the universe, an infinite void that human language patches now? Along these lines, there is a peculiar book, a short preview in http://goo.gl/rfVqw6 Just another suggestion, far away from dogmas or axioms.

  2. Do you have any association or affiliation with “SUSPICI0US OBSERVERS”? Do you know of any of THEIR work?

  3. I hate to da it and I’m sure you are working on it, but you have alot of catching up to do in MICHIGAN as far as FRACKING goes. Adrain, MI is becoming a iinjection well dump site. And not to mention MICHIGAN has broken world records of water usage for FRACKING over 14 MILLION gallons! WTF. “LETSBANFRACKING.ORG” HAS GREAT INFORMATION AND LOCATIONS OF WELLS IN PROGRESS.
