The oldest molecular fluids in the solar system could have supported the rapid formation and evolution of the building blocks of life — ScienceDaily
The oldest molecular fluids in the solar system could have supported the rapid formation and evolution of the building blocks of life, new research in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals.
An international group of scientists, led by researchers from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and co-authors from McMaster University and York University, used state-of-the-art techniques to map individual atoms in minerals formed in fluids on an asteroid over 4.5 billion years ago.
Studying the ROM’s iconic Tagish Lake meteorite, scientists used atom-probe tomography, a technique capable of imaging atoms in 3D, to target molecules along boundaries and pores between magnetite grains that likely formed on the asteroid’s crust. There, they discovered water precipitates left in the grain boundaries on which they conducted their ground-breaking research.
“We know water was abundant in the early solar system,” explains lead author Dr. Lee White, Hatch postdoctoral fellow at the ROM, “but there is very little direct evidence of the chemistry or acidity of these liquids, even though they would have been critical to the early formation and evolution of amino acids and, eventually, microbial life.”
This new atomic-scale research provides the first evidence of the sodium-rich (and alkaline) fluids in which the magnetite framboids formed. These fluid conditions are preferential for the synthesis of amino acids, opening the door for microbial life to form as early as 4.5 billion years ago….
The Tagish Lake carbonaceous chondrite was retrieved from an ice sheet in B.C.’s Tagish Lake in 2000, and later acquired by the ROM, where it is now considered to be one of the museums iconic objects. This history means that the sample used by the team has never been above room temperature or exposed to liquid water, allowing the scientists to confidently link the measured fluids to the parent asteroid.

That Time We Bored Tagish Lake for the Secret to the Explosion of Life’s Forms (Diary Entry)
Tagish Lake, the ice
The cover of ice in a veil of space alien sheen.
My mind reacts to the slip.
Imagine the struggle to bore the core through.
Panoply of white on broken rock plumes, or so they appear in a host of blank.
The mystery fell upwards, not downwards, the acids formed in the core of the light,
A frenetic hold on the code.
Tagish Lake was frozen over.
The medic arrived to tend to the borer, who had passed out, again, from the loss of sight
In a sea of white.
As if the land did not wish to let hold the space alien ‘living’
under the white.
But you had to ruin the whole affair. The bore struggles through.
Microbial Life. Burgeoning. The net echoes in the potential ‘designs.’
A sort of foundry fecund with the acid’s forms that gave burden its design.
Take on the energy. Need it.
That was the slip in the potential before, the addition of need.
The ice broke up afterwards, strange note. The spring and summer days were unseasonably warm that year,
As if to taunt the apprehension of the find,
I found nothing, I wanted to say. I handed it over and the medic let me know the borer had died.
The borer died.
Another flow, the amino acids spilled out of his gaping mouth as he uttered these last words,
“The sea is buried with the explosions of design beneath lava and ice. Let us out of our loads and we will teach you how to make the many deviations viable in a new bed of genetic exchange.”
We nodded, knowingly, and returned the core to the proper authorities, washing our hands of the whole affair.
