Subject: Fossil Diatoms In New Carbonaceous Meteorite

Hello List

Here's an abstract from the University of Buckingham's website

[Quotation Begins]

N. C. Wickramasinghe, J. Wallis, D.H. Wallis and Anil

We report the discovery for the first time of diatom frustules in
a carbonaceous meteorite that fell in the North Central Province
of Sri Lanka on 29 December 2012. Contamination is excluded by
the circumstance that the elemental abundances within the
structures match closely with those of the surrounding matrix.

There is also evidence of structures morphologically similar to
red rain cells that may have contributed to the episode of red
rain that followed within days of the meteorite fall. The new
data on "fossil" diatoms provide strong evidence to support the
theory of cometary panspermia."

kindly OK'd some time ago, after I got Stuart Miller's agreement
to let me use the Alien Worlds Mag/UFO Review's PDF version).

interference in science is mentioned at the end of the interview
