Photosynthesis appeared on the planet earlier than it was thought.
Until today, scientists were confident that free oxygen was formed about 2, 45 billion years ago. It was at that moment that cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) became capable of photosynthesis, and the name of this complex protein process is photosystem II. His main task: to oxidize water and to capture solar photons. As a result of this photochemical reaction, a free electron is produced, which allows to make further photosynthesis steps. The byproduct of this process is oxygen.
Experts from Imperial College, located in the capital of Great Britain, have increased the volume of studied structures capable of photosynthesis. As a result, it turned out that cyanobacteria appeared later than oxygen for nearly a billion years. Based on the results, we can conclude that the complexity of evolution is exaggerated, and on other planets, most likely, there is life.

Scientists have found that such phenomena may be related to the fact that substances around the pulsar create a powerful lens, which, in turn, increases the power of the streams being sent.
