Today is December 30, 2011.

Today, I am reading a book edited by D. Deamer and J. Szostak published from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press.

Of course I am a layman as to the geological field. Regarding this field, I am almost like a 800 pounds Gollira having IQ 40.

On page 41, a possibility of hot rain of 200 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees that might fall on the ancient Erath was written.

First of all, can water exist in liquid state at such  high temperatures?

If I would go to that era by a time machine, and if I would wear a survival siute, then can I endure that heat?

Oh, atchitchitchi!

How did the hot rain fall?

What chemicals were the constituents of that rain?

Did it erode everything including even the Earth surface rocks?

How fast was the speed of the falling rain?  Was the associated wind so enormous?

Was it associated by huge thunders?

Was it like the current Venus surface?


How do you imagine the ancient Earth surface chemically?

Imagine the past nascent Earth surface of about 4.0Ga yaears ago!!


Looking forward to receiving your various imaginations,
