Nitrogen Fixation

TNRTB Archive - Retained for reference information

Japanese scientists have discovered additional evidence for the supernatural design of Earth and the solar system for the benefit of advanced life. They found another source for nitrogen fixation, the life-critical process whereby molecular nitrogen is transformed into nitrogen compound nutrients for advanced plants. They demonstrated that buckminsterfullerenes (molecular spheres made up of 60 carbon atoms) can produce significant nitrogen fixation without the benefit of metal catalysts. Consequently, the fine-tuning of the steady rain of buckminsterfullerenes from interplanetary and interstellar space onto the surface of Earth qualifies as an additional evidence of the design of the solar system for the benefit of advanced life.
