It could not have come by itself. The composition of an asteroid near Earth does not look like a natural one 

Between the orbits of Earth and Mars around the Sun rotates a 900-meter block of asteroid Ryugu. There are plenty of similar celestial bodies in the region. But Ryugu is the only one to which the Japanese space agency has sent a special mission. In 2020, the probe brought samples of Ryugu’s rocks to Earth and here it turned out that he himself could not come here. The composition of the asteroid is completely different from the natural one – it found substances that existed before the emergence of the solar system.

The apparatus of the Japanese space agency JAXA returned to Earth samples of soil from Ryugu. The lab found that they contain amino acids – organic compounds that are the basis for all life on our planet.

And isotopic analysis of the soil samples showed that Ryugu formed somewhere at least in the outer part of the solar system. This is where comets, not asteroids, usually appear.

Some Japanese scientists believe the asteroid Ryugu is the remnant of an extinct comet. Not all researchers agree with these conclusions.
