Part 3: Some Scientific Explorations
Your final task here will be to investigate various scientific ideas on how life could have arisen from non-life. For the sake of simplicity, we will watch one of two lectures (NOTE: you don’t have to watch both unless you want to) by origins of life researchers:
After/as you are watching the video answer the following:
- What are some of the conditions that we have evidence for concerning the early Earth?
- What are some of the various hypotheses that origins of life researchers have explored?
- What are some of the successes of origins of life researchers?
- What are some things that we don’t know about the origins of life?
- What are some of the approaches origins of life researchers are taking to try and close these gaps in understand?
