Half of Earth's water may come from solar wind and space dust


Recommended Posts

Where did Earth get its water in the first place? Scientists have long searched for answers to this question.

We studied tiny pieces of an asteroid to find out—and we think a rain of protons from the sun may be producing water all the time on rocks and dust throughout the Solar System.

In fact, up to half of Earth's water may have been produced this way and arrived here with falling space dust.
