It might well have. Imagin a planet with life on it (nice micro organisms would
suffice). Next imagin this rather largish planetoid. They collide with an
enourmous -*BANG*-. This would (in theory) shoot off large amounts of water
from the planets surface. One or more of these particles (comets) lands on
earth, adding a trivial amount of water and a not so trivial amount of micro
Life could, theoreticaly, have come from space, but then where did it start?
