Lecture 8. In the beginning: The origins of life.

In the search for scientific explanations on the origins of life on earth, scientists are now looking at other places in the universe to try to glimpse how this might have occurred. Here are some sites that focus on exobiology: NASA's Origins Program and Exobiology. You can also revisit the site on The modern version of Panspermia I included in the links for Lecture 2.

Here are some more cool links to follow for more information on the Origin and Evolution of Life and The Origin of Life on Earth.

For a summary of the information presented in lecture on this topic, I've included a link on The Origin of Life.
