New Delhi: NASA scientists think that the violent and powerful storms of young sun is one of the key factor that stimulated life on earth.
In its early days the surface of the sun was bubbled with eruptions that spewed enormous amount of solar materials and radiation out into the space.
NASA astronomers believed that these storms penetrated earth's magnetosphere which was weaker at that time.
The recent study shows that violent rays of young sun then came in contact with nitrogen-rich atmosophere of the Earth, creating greenhouse effect. Beacuse of this, our planet slowly started getting warm which ultimately generated climatic conditions for the development of life.
