Human, like all the surrounding nature, owes its origin to the stars.
The six most important elements (hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur) in various combinations make up the majority of all biological molecules on Earth.
Scientists have established that the mechanisms of the origin of life are the same for the entire universe.
This information will allow astronomers to clarify where and when the elements necessary for the emergence of life appeared in our galaxy and, possibly, to determine the "galactic habitable zone".
