Hey guys, so I found a really unusual system in 0.9.7.2:

Planet RSC-0-6-173264-407-1231-4-3137-47 B8

It's a Frozen Gas Giant with life (Organic Unicellular aerial). The life began on this planet with Panspermia. Not too crazy, right? Well, two of its moons have life as well. One is Exotic Unicellular, marine and terrestrial. Also beginning with Panspermia. The part that gets me is that the second moon has Exotic Unicellular, marine and terrestrial - but began with abiogenesis!

What scenarios do you guys think could cause such diversity of life (and its origins!) in the same system? I had to Google "Panspermia" and "Abiogenesis" and doing so only confounded me further on what could have happened wacko

It's worth noting that the planet and moons all have the same age of 2.351 x 10^9 years

"Abiogenesis" means that life appeard and evolved on a planet/moon, while "panspaermia" means that life didn't appear on the planet/moon but came from another life-bearing world. So, there is what probably happenned :

A few billion years ago, life appeard on the second moon, then a large meteorite hit the moon, causing some bacterias to be launched at escape velocity, and eventually some of them landed in the (methane) oceans of the first moon, and spread arround the world.

The life on the gas giant came via panspermia either, but it has nothing to do with the life on the moons, since it is organic and the life of the moons is exotic, and i noticed that floating life seems to be able to do intherstellar panspermia, as some giants have life marked as "panspaermia" while they are the only life-bearing planet oh their solar system.

How do you tell? is this a thing in space engine i have overlooked? because i've never been able to differ one another.

Fixed answer (My brain has been acting like jelly recently):

You can find the origins of the planet's life under the "Wiki" you can find on the bottom of the left sidebar in SE 0.972.





I'm back, but am I here to stay? Hopefully!
