Primary Life analysis

The earliest fossils (3.3-3.5 Gy ago) have been found in metamorphic "greenstone belts", which have emerged through an Archean « vertical tectonics ». Fossils were found and characterized based on encompassing rock dating coupled to our non-destructive X-ray methods of nano-imaging (synchrotron)

We will  analyse primordial traces of life (3.4 Gy Greenstone belts and 1.9-2.3Gy  Gunflint Iron Formation) through a non-invasive methods of structural nano-imaging using synchrotron radiation to prepare a failsafe identification method for Life for upcoming extraterrestrial Sample Return Missions.
