Wow. Mexican researchers have completed their models of earth’s ejecta (this outstanding word is the stuff the earth would eject out of it’s gravity after getting hit).
Turns out that not only would our moon and Mars be logical targets for the ejecta, but potentially life-bearing earth rocks would also hit Jupiter much more than suspected.
You’ve probably heard about Jupiter’s various moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede…) being a favorite choice of possible ET homes and this study lends possibility to that. Early earth could have been slammed hard enough to kill the dinosaurs and blast a few giant chunks towards Jupiter.
We get our chocolate in their peanut butter and the rest is history.
If one of those planets has the ET race earthlings keeps drawing and seeing in their dreams I wonder if they are gonna like our probes heading their way?
