Description

Have you ever wondered how life first got started on Earth? So do scientists! Though the question has not yet been fully answered, a careful study of Chemical Evolution is beginning to shed light on this mystery.

In this film you will learn what Chemical Evolution is, how it works, and how it is different from Biological Evolution.

This animation was paid for by the Center for Chemical Evolution, the National Science Foundation, and NASA!

For an overview of research that has been done on abiotic fatty-acid membrane formation, check out this paper by Dr. Pierre-Alain Monnard and Stated Clearly’s science advisor Dr. David W. Deamer.

Read about the solubility of fatty-acids in warm water. It is this solubility of fatty acids which allows natural selection to sort them out of the mess they are typically produced in during abiotic synthesis.

Learn of the bio-molecules discovered on meteorites. These biomolecules were not produced by living creatures, instead, they were created abiotically in a way similar to how we think the first biomolecules formed on Earth!
