Earth's Water Came From Space Dust?

Earth's Water Came From Space Dust?

Sullivan, C., 2015, Earth’s water came from space dust during
planetary formation, Eos. vol. 96, no. 2, p. 3. doi:10.1029/2015EO040147.

" A new analysis of lava from the deep mantle indicates that
water-soaked dust particles, rather than a barrage of icy
comets, asteroids, or other bodies, delivered water to the newly
forming Earth."
