Life's Rocky Road Between Worlds

Sydney - June 12, 2001 - A possible mechanism for transfer of life between
planets is via rocks ejected by major asteroid or comet impacts. The term
"transpermia" was coined by Oliver Morton to describe the transfer of
lifeforms by this method and to distinguish it from the more general
concept of panspermia.
