Asteroids Boiled Young Earth’s Oceans. High temperatures shaped life’s early evolution

Asteroids Boiled Young Earth’s Oceans. High temperatures shaped life’s early evolution

Did a massive asteroid turn Earth into a boiling
'Spring' 3.3 billion years ago? Daily Mail Online.

“Scientists found evidence for huge asteroid impacts up to
3.3 billion years ago. These may have superheated the
atmosphere and raised the temperature and after losing
100 m of water, Earth would have resembled a 'hot spring.”
