likely that life began in space, according to a new paper by Cardiff
University scientists.

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe
and colleagues at the University's Centre for Astrobiology have long
argued the case for panspermia - the theory that life began inside
comets and then spread to habitable planets across the galaxy. A recent
BBC Horizon documentary traced the development of the theory.

the team claims that findings from space probes sent to investigate
passing comets reveal how the first organisms could have formed.
