I am a big believer in Panspermia. I truly don't understand why this is such a controversial idea these days. The universe seems to be conditioned for life. There is apparently abundance of water throughout the universe and the building blocks of life seem to be contained in asteroids, meteors and comets. IF these rocks were to crash onto a world that could support or act as a catylist to life, why is this idea still seen as controversial? Clearly as we discover more this seems to be the most likely hypothesis of how life spread throughout the galaxy if not the universe.
