I hope you aren't implying that Callahan et al. are peddling woo or closet creationism, keyfeatures (and aquilacane, for that matter), because there is nothing magical about the spread of amno acids through deep space. There is, of course, some ambiguity in the phrase "made in space", because "space" can either mean "the entire universe outside of Earth" or "the entire universe outside of planets/moons". They probably mean the former, although I can't be sure.
