Abstract
Data acquired from various scientific disciplines in the past five years have converged to elevate the status of panspermia as one of the major contenders in theories of the origins of life on Earth. We review the trends that point towards a vindication of the idea that biomaterial from comets may be distributed widely throughout the universe and might even be reaching us in the present day.
