Research teams have uncovered the underground hot water canal network, in which the first seeds of life on Earth were formed 66 million years ago.
A recent study by an international team from the Space Research Association at Imperial College in London and the universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland, has found impressive results about the first life on Earth.

According to the study carried out in the Chicolope volcanic crater buried under the soil in Mexico, the effects of the fall of a huge asteroid the size of a city may decipher the mystery of mankind and scientists since the beginning.
The team found that the impact of the rock or asteroid from space and the effects of collision, produced a network of warm waterways under the crater, located on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico.
The researchers monitored samples of rocks under the crater left behind by the asteroid during its collision with the Earth, and it shows the warm waterways that produced the first life, according to the research published in the British “Daily Mail”.
2- The Chicxulub crater is 66 mil y.o. This is basically the same time (geologically speaking) of the mass extinction that killed 75% of life on Earth, including all non-avian dinosaurs.

This hydrothermal network provides the ideal conditions for microorganisms to thrive, indicating the influence of these asteroids or comets that have collided with Earth in the process of life’s emergence.
Chicxulub crater is estim 150km (93mi) in diameter & 20km (12mi) deep (1 of the largest confirmed impacts on Earth). The asteroid was 11-81km (6.8-50.3mi) in diam. 75% of plants / animals became extinct. Impact occurred ~ 66M yrs ago — equal to 21-921B A-bombs.https: //t.co/zc6rYDOZPS pic.twitter.com/QsaLjesGMp

The researchers said that the hydrothermal network under the nozzle of Chixolube lasted for more than a million years, and increased the production of chemicals and proteins that formed living cells.
Schools was just a training … TO MAKE YOU THINK
There was multiple and huge meteorites impact all over the world + – 65 millions years ago

Scientists have linked the emergence of these first living cells with warm water or fluids that have formed and contain the necessary nutrients and self-reproducing parts of DNA called RNA molecules, which in turn turn into the genetic code of life.

According to the lead author of the study, Dr. David Carring, this process could give the key to finding life on Mars or other planets in space outside our solar system.
This theory supports the idea that our planet was arid at times, and was bustling with life at other times, and that the asteroids that struck the Earth caused the demise of species of animals, such as dinosaurs, for example, to show other creatures and animals as a result of this collision.
And that this theory could happen on any planet that has a rocky and habitable environment, such as Mars for example, or some planets outside our galaxy.
