Space Probe Hayabusa2 sent back samples from the asteroid Ryugu. And this is what we know so far.
Amino Acids – known as ‘the building blocks of life” – have been detected in samples extracted from an asteroid by Japan’s Space Probe Hayabusa2.
Japanese Space probe Hayabusa2 has collected dust from an asteroid 200 million miles from earth. More than 20 types of amino acids have been discovered in the samples brought back by the space Probe.
The Japanese researchers, in charge of the project, say the finding could mean that there is life in outer space.
The Probe, Hayabusa2, brings back 5.4g of the surface material from the Ryugu asteroid.
Data also suggested that the Asteroid Ryugu could be the ancestor of an extinct comet. A comet that spent thousands of years traveling through the solar system.
