Authors: George Managadze (Russian Academy of Science, Moscow, Russia) 
Book Description:
This book offers a new concept of the possible genesis of primary forms of living matter and the mechanism of mirror symmetry breaking in the plasma processes that accompany a hypervelocity meteorite impact onto the Earth surface or the surface of any other planet.
The concept is based on results obtained in direct impact experiments and in laboratory simulations of hypervelocity impact processes involving the generation of a plasma torch, on bona fide data on the physical processes occurring in nature, and on the available material evidence of impact consequences on Solar system bodies. The concept can explain the possibility of the emergence of extraterrestrial life in the interiors of celestial bodies with extreme surface temperatures and moderate temperatures in the inner layers provided water is present.
