Hello List

An item in today's Science Daily said "Slow-Moving Rocks Better
Odds That Life Crashed to Earth from Space", which is all about
panspermia - only these particular examples are called
"lithospermia" - i.e. life carried by rocks.

See www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/09/120924144751.htm

Looking into the article, and other recent research findings

http://iopscience.iop.org/0004-637X/754/1/56

"Was The Sun Born In A Massive Cluster?

some facts seem significant:

the odds of transfer are good in star clusters, and even better
in super-clusters;

the Sun seems to've been born in a supercluster of many tens of
thousands stars (or more): evidenced by our finding heavy
elements born in nearby super-novas, plus many meteoritic traces
- so the Sun must've had lots of close neighbours in its early
life;

the over-lapping windows of opportunity for these events - many
near neighbours, lots of slow transfer, suitable early Earth
conditions (or on other Earthlike planets) all mean that a good
deal of mutual transfers could have been of bacteria (including
DNA).

Many of our Sun's siblings will have dispersed randomly
throughout the Galaxy during the 20 to 30 galactic orbits the
Sun has made since birth, but there are probably many more still
in the vicinity.

Recent research has hugely increased the chances of planets,
including Earthlike ones, around virtually any star, including
double or triple star systems.

An obvious conclusion is that there might be many thousands, or
hundreds of thousands of life forms in the Galaxy which are DNA
related to Earth life, and many won't be very far away.
