Two strange giant asteroids.

It is about 203 Pompeja of 116.3 kilometers in diameter, the name is in honor of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii but it is pronounced in German Pompeja because it is the language of its discoverer Cristiano Henry who discovered it on September 25, 1879, the other asteroid is 269 Justitia 53.6 kilometers in diameter whose name refers to the Roman goddess of Justice, was discovered on September 21, 1887 by Johan Paliza from the Vienna Observatory in Austria.


These two asteroids are old acquaintances orbiting the sun in the asteroid belt, but what scientists led by Sunao Hasegawa of JAXA, the Japanese space agency, have now discovered is that these asteroids should not be where they are, which made the The scientists' warnings are that the asteroids were surprisingly red and that is something very abnormal.

Asteroids from the inner solar system, that is, from the asteroid belt towards the sun, tend to reflect more blue light because they lack organic molecules on their surface, organic molecules or compounds are those that contain carbon, on the other hand, objects in the The outer solar system is redder because they have a large amount of organic compounds and it is that although it seems strange, carbon compounds need cold and a lot of ice, also a little radiation from the sun which allows them to combine and form more compounds, but too much heat it feels terrible.


He clarified that although we associate organic with life since living beings are made up of organic compounds, these organic compounds are created naturally and have existed before life emerged, so organic compounds can exist without life forms but not life forms can exist without organic compounds and here we arrive at one of the paradoxes: the existence of life on earth, because if organic compounds are formed in great quantity far from the sun and it is very scarce in the inner solar system, as the land enough of these compounds for life to arise in it.

Perhaps they arrived in asteroids like Pompeja and Justitia during the chaotic moments of the birth of the solar system, because this finding is a trip to the past offers us evidence of planetary migration in the early solar system and particularly serves to support the theory called the Nice Model. , told in a simple way this model explains that during a few hundred million years in the formation of the solar system, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune moved away from the sun while Jupiter moved towards the sun luckily for earthlings not too much, with These changes were pushed hundreds of thousands or millions of asteroids that had formed away from the sun, it was what was called late intense bombardment, something that happened about 4,100 million years ago.

A bombardment that can be analyzed and seen in the age of the craters of the moon and Mercury, many of which come from that time, could be that not all of those primitive asteroids full of organic molecules will end up thrown towards the sun the planets or the moon, perhaps these two pompeii and justice managed to enter a stable orbit in the area of ​​the asteroid belt and this represents an extraordinary opportunity for space exploration because they are two objects similar to those that we would find near Neptune and beyond, Only this time they are located in a region where a spacecraft can reach easily and in a reasonable time, we may be able to discover the original matter from which life arose and who knows, maybe there is some extra element that we do not know now but may it be the key that we need to complete the recipe of life.
