    Imagine all the extraterrestrial matter that earth absorbs over a given time frame (multiple of years, to account for the orbital path). If all of that is converted (perfectly) to energy at E=mc^2, is that figure greater than the energy that hit earth in the form of solar radiation, during that time?
