New Scientist Live: The quest for life's origin
Advertisement
How did life on Earth begin? This is one of the most profound questions we can ask, and for almost a century, a small band of eccentric scientists has struggled to explain it. There are many proposals, and each idea has attracted believers who promote it fervently, as well as detractors who reject it with equal passion. However, it now seems all these ideas are profoundly wrong. Most aim to kick-start life with just one component, like a gene. But this doesn’t work. Instead, it may be that life began with all its major components, just in drastically simplified form.
