    Organic compounds and water found in meteorites

    In two meteorites that were found in Texas and Morocco in some blue salts in the interior of the rocks liquid water and organic compounds were found. These compounds and salts came probably from the asteroid Ceres.

    It's interesting, but it's been known for a good while that certain classes of asteroid had liquid water percolating through their underground rock pores, and organic chemistry that got at least as far as building blocks of RNA, protiens, and self assembling cel wall materials (nucleobases, amino acids, lipids, etc).
