Amazing how many US companies and corporations are pushing this privacy-killing standards and slogans. :/

NASA using it's awesome mass spectrometer to examine space rocks reveals building blocks for some forms of early life. Amazing what will survive the harshest conditions of the universe, even if in only minute amounts.... 
While the origin of life remains mysterious, scientists are finding more and more evidence that material created in space and delivered to Earth by comet and meteor impacts could have given a boost to the start of life. Some meteorites supply molecules that can be used as building blocks to make certain kinds of larger molecules that are critical for life.

Researchers have analyzed carbon-rich meteorites (carbonaceous chondrites) and found amino acids, which are used to make proteins. Proteins are among the most important molecules in life, used to make structures like hair and skin, and to speed up or regulate chemical reactions. They have also found components used to make DNA, the molecule that carries the instructions for how to build and regulate a living organism, as well as other biologically important molecules like nitrogen heterocycles, sugar-related organic compounds, and compounds found in modern metabolism.

Picture here is the equipment used by NASA Goddard's Astrobiology Analytical Lab to analyze very small samples. On the right is the nanoelectrospray emitter, which gives sample molecules an electric charge and transfers them to the inlet of the mass spectrometer (left), which identifies the molecules by their mass.

This technology and the laboratory techniques that the Goddard lab develops to apply it to analyze meteorites will be valuable for future sample-return missions since the amount of sample likely will be limited.

O.o` 

Kinda scary - and sad - when society moves toward this much surveillance. It can make high-resolution 270-degree scans of the neighborhood, shopping center or other area it patrols, and can scan up to 90,000 license plates per hour....

I suppose we have school shootings, kidnappings and other crime to thank for this.
