What plant could fall to Earth from space? :.: Article 08.08.2019 at 21:00 :.: Article

Dispute scientists on how our planet appeared flora and fauna, with no end in sight. It lasts for centuries. There are many hypotheses. One of them is based on the fact that "spores" of life came to our planet from outer space, overcoming the vast distances inside meteorites, asteroids, comets. And like as this assumption has a confirmation. In particular, in meteorites found in Antarctica, was allegedly discovered extraterrestrial building blocks of life. But the peculiarity is that there is no clear answer. Some scientists think these meteorites are evidence in favor of the hypothesis, and others are talking about fake. Alas, in the academic world this is sometimes. So the issue remains open to this day. But sometimes of an extraterrestrial origin could not help thinking, seeing something fantastic. For example, a plant that is perceived visually as a whole, although composed of very small flowers, closely appressed to each other. For its development, it uses chlorophyll, and this "indicator" is no different from all other terrestrial plants that use sunlight. Area large planomat: Then what makes some scientists to believe that, for example, unusual plant seeds area somehow came to us from another planet? For example, Mars, where very harsh conditions? Let's try to understand the logic of these scientists. Area on Earth only grows in high mountain desert areas at an altitude of 3200 meters or more, up to the level of 4000 meters. This level is already greatly reduced atmospheric pressure with very little moisture content and sharp daily differences of temperatures. Such conditions could be on the surface of Mars many millions of years ago, when he began to lose air. Of course, there is a plant adapted to local conditions. Hitting somehow on the Ground (say, inside a meteorite which had broken up then from time to time), it survived only in conditions close to the Martian in those days. This is just a hypothesis. But let's continue "investigation". Pillow arity in Profoto: it has Long been observed that area "chooses" only rocky soil with minimal moisture. It looks like green space mold in a different form from sci-Fi movies. But with very careful inspection you can see thousands of tiny plants, collected in one. They are closely pressed against each other in order to cold at night the heat loss was minimal. When the temperature in the daytime in this form almost does not evaporate the moisture. This contributes to the fact that the miniature leaves and flowers covered with vegetable wax. Have arity and one more feature, causing us to think that this plant came to us from Mars. Talking about speed of growth. For the year yareta grows to a height of just one centimeter, and only in some cases a little more. But the width grows more rapidly, it is unlikely that the vast majority of terrestrial plants. Areaphoto: Depositphotos How can we explain this behavior arety? Assuming that in the harsh Martian conditions survived only plant that skillfully "creep" on the soil and in dust storms (on Mars they are global and long) to keep the roots by covering them in dense vegetation carpet. Do not argue, there are only assumptions. But still very interesting when you see such unusual for our planet plant. ...
