Life on Asteroids?

In one of my previous posts I talked about the large amount of interest in the possibility of extraterrestrial life out there and in this article I am going to explain one potential source for life in the universe. Asteroid's are many times thought to be dangerous to life due to the fact that if a large enough one were to collide with earth it could kill many people; however, asteroids many times will have certain compounds on them that could be necessary for life and if they impact into a planet with the right conditions it is theoretically possible that life could be made possible. The conditions in which this can occur are pretty rare, but this does give us a possible source for life to occur on other planets.
