Being orbited by 13 ancient celestial bodies which contain with a high probability records of our solar system’s history.
The 13 meteorites from different angles of our solar system were placed every 47cm on the bottom of my dervish skirt to orbit my being in the primordial rock.
Meteorites could have been responsible for delivering the basis of
life’s genetic code. Analyses suggest that nucleobases, the crucial
components of DNA, could have formed in space and then fallen to Earth
to provide the raw material for the origin of life itself.
`It is possible that some of the ancient celestial bodies contain presolar grains-minerals that existed even before our sun was born.
These bits of stardust became trapped in meteorites where they remained unchanged for billions of years, making them time capsules of the time before the solar system´says Prof. Philipp Heck from the University of Chicago.
Such fragments orbit the Sun for some time–often millions of years–before colliding with Earth. Most meteorites are far older than the oldest rocks on Earth. They carry informations about how our solar system evolved into the Sun and planets of today—and how meteorite impacts could affect our future.
