We’ve lived on Earth for a long, long time.
Somewhere between 5 million and 7 million years ago we inhabited Earth, and dinosaurs were here 65 million years ago.
We don’t really know what at what singualr point our life as humans began here on Earth. Latest research suggests that it could be the result of ‘superflares’ from the sun.
Could it be true?
By firing charged particles found in the solar wind at a mixture of gases appearing in Earth’s early atmosphere, scientists learned that the combined ingredients form remarkable quantities of amino acids and carboxylic acids— the start for proteins and all organic life.
Don’t ask us how they did that. Just be amazed at what some scientists can conceive and achieve!
Scientists have been perplexed about the conditions that gave rise to life on Earth for more than two centuries, beginning in the 1800s when it was hypothesized that life may have originated from a chemical broth. In the 1950s, experiments involving gas mixtures of methane, ammonia, water and molecular hydrogen with artificial lightning demonstrated the production of 20 different amino acids.
Now, a new study that from fiercely energetic superflares could have provided the necessary jump-start for life on Earth. This is more likely because there needed to be more carbon dioxide and nitrogen in the atmosphere.
Solar flares only usually erupt once every 100 years or so, but back then that might not have been the case. It could have been solar flares sparking from its surface every 3 to 10 days but it is hard to tell so far back.
And now the circle turns. Now - at last - we learn that molecular hydrogen supports our own lives in so many ways we lose count. We are grateful to the Molecular hydrogen institute that has assembled all the scientific studies of the use of H2 for health support. Take a look.
