Europe’s troubled Mars rover still vital in the search for life

The stars have not been aligned for Europe’s first Martian rover ExoMars, but scientists still think the aging vehicle can play a big role in answering one of the biggest questions in Mars exploration: has there ever been life on the Red Planet? The European Space Agency’s (ESA) ExoMars Rosalind Franklin Rover is probably the …

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 …

New Set of Chemical Reactions Could Finally Explain How Life Started on Earth

Once upon a time, when our planet Earth was very young and very new, there was not a single scrap of life on it to be found. Then, somewhere, somehow, some quirk of chemistry happened, and the molecular building blocks of our very first single-celled ancestors emerged: the amino acids and nucleic acids that came …
