1962: Carbon dust theory proposed, disputed and eventually accepted.
1974: Organic polymer dust proposed
1977: Aromatic dust model proposed and observationally confirmed
1977: Biochemicals of life (seeds) proposed to be widespread in the galaxy
1977: Red flu pandemic, and viruses and bacteria from space proposed
1979-80: Origin of life from comets. Evolution of life on Earth linked to input of viruses and bacteria from comets
1981: Prediction of infrared signature of bacteria confirmed from observations made at the AAT
1982-1989: Polyaromatic hydrocarbon molecules discovered everywhere in the Universe – fits prediction of the H-W model
1986: Comet Halley observed at last perihelion, fulfilling predictions of bacterial model
2001: ISRO stratospheric sampling of stratosphere finds evidence of bacteria of presumed cometary origin
2001-2006: Comet missions continue to provide amazing consistency with H-W model, though not admitted!
2001-2010: The role of viruses in evolution of life becomes generally accepted after the completion of the Human Genome Project. Viral fingerprints everywhere in our genes, exactly as predicted by HW
2004-2014: Discovery of habitable exoplanets have made panspermia – transfer of life between planetary systems – inevitable. The current total in the galaxy exceeds 100 billion, and there will be no stopping of life-enchanges between planetary systems. We live in one connected biosphere on a super galactic scale.
2000-2015: The oldest evidence of life on the Earth has moved back in time from 3.5 billion years ago to 3.83 billion years to 4.1 billion years. The oldest evidence currently accepted places this moment so far back that the primordial soup theory is virtually squeezed out of the geological record.
2014-2015: Rosetta Mission to comet 67P/C-G has provided evidence that can most easily be explained by microbiology beneath a frozen crust. Space probes of Pluto, Enceladus and Ceres also show tantalising evidence of ongoing microbiology.
