Brig Klyce’s Cosmic Ancestry website provides the best resource on the internet for discussions relating to Panspermia, and in particular the Hoyle-Wickramasinghe theories. I am in complete agreement with Brig’s philosophy that the origin of life and all its evolutionary complexity is not solved by science at the present time, but once life has arisen in the cosmos its propagation and transmission is inevitable. Panspermia is a scientific hypothesis that is subject to test and verification/falsification and this is precisely the endeavour that Cosmic Ancestry monitors and explores. The Astrobiology Research Trust (ART) under Brig’s stewardship has supported research projects related to panspermia at US and UK Universities including Cardiff University and the University of Buckingham. ART has supported PhD fees of a research student as well as two conferences in Cardiff, one to celebrate the contributions of Fred Hoyle in 2002 and another on Panspermia to mark my retirement in 2006. Last year ART awarded Chandra its Lifetime Achievement award.
