C. Wickramasinghe, J. Wallis, D.H. Wallis and Anil Samaranayake 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."

It's at: www.perceptions.couk.com/panspermia.html#update17 And, for those interested, the controversial subject of Gov't interference in science is mentioned at the end of the interview - at: www.perceptions.couk.com/panspermia.html#pursuit Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
