  • Geneticists applied Moore’s law of computer power to life – and found it adds weight to the theory life originated away from Earth.
  • Results suggest life first appeared about 10 billion years ago, far older than the Earth’s projected age of 4.5 billion years.

Life existed before Earth, and may have originated outside out solar system, researchers have claimed.

Geneticists have used a theory that usually governs the speed increases of computers – and applied it to life.

The results suggest life first appeared about 10 billion years ago – long before Earth, which is believed to be 4.5 billion years old.

Moore’s Law is the observation that computers increase exponentially in complexity, at a rate of about double the transistors per integrated circuit every two years.

If you apply Moore’s Law to just the last few years’ rate of computational advances and work backwards, you end up in the 1960s, when the first microchip were invented.

Alexei Sharov at the National Institute on Ageing in Baltimore Richard Gordon at the Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory in Florida,decided to apply this theory to life and see when it began.
