Panspermia is the name for the theory that life exists and is distributed throughout the universe in the form of germs or spores.We are part of the family of Life.
The seeds of life, actual living creatures and their DNA, flow throughout the cosmos and have taken root on innumerable worlds much older than our own.
And these genetic seeds contain the DNA instruction for the metamorphosis of all life, including woman and man...and this is how life on our planet began.
Life on Earth came from other planets and these living creatures contained the genetic instructions for the evolutionary metamorphosis of all life which has taken root on Earth--replicating and recreating living creatures that long ago lived on other planets.
We all share the complex structures which make us unique in Nature.
As intelligent members of the family of Life, we must therefore secure and maximize Life in the universe.
With life-centered panbiotic astroethics we can expand Life in space. The Life that we plant can expand to fill the universe. The new branches of Life will advance further, and our descendants may seek eternity.
In them, our existence will find a cosmic purpose.
We can soon launch panspermia missions to seed other habitable solar systems. We can target nearby stars and star-forming zones in interstellar clouds.
Each mission can seed dozens of new solar systems where local life has not formed.
We may launch swarms of capsules by solar sails from Earth orbit, or using shielded 10 - 100 kg payloads that will disperse into millions of capsules at the targets. Each capsule can seed a new planet, or incorporate in asteroids and comets, which will deliver them to planets later when they can sustain life.
The payloads can contain microorganisms that will start a self-sustaining ecosystem: algae, bacteria, and multicellular organisms that can speed up higher evolution.
Eventually, intelligent beings may evolve who will expand Life further in the galaxy.
I AM LIFE ...
