Scientists Discover New “Origins of Life” Chemical Reactions

“We think the kind of reactions we’ve described are probably what could have happened on early Earth,” says Ramanarayanan Krishnamurthy. The reaction generates the building blocks of proteins and DNA: amino acids and nucleic acids. Four billion years ago, the Earth looked very different than it does today. It was devoid of life and covered …
