The Starter Package of Life: The First Molecules
Sophia Schwarz (PhD student - Emergence of life)
From bacteria to humans, all life on Earth is made of the same building blocks: sugars, amino acids, and DNA. With their appearance, chemical and biological evolution started. But how did they form from the simple molecules of the solar nebula? And did they form on Earth or in space? Scientists try to understand how this first step towards life could have happened, and recreate it in the lab.
