Again nobody really knows what was the spark that created life. We can only speculate…

I really enjoyed seeing this newest movie made by ‘The Universe’ in which astrobiologists, discuss how life might have originated on Earth, based on the range of conditions where life survives today and the conditions that existed on the early Earth. Then we can only look for those conditions, past or present, that may exist on other planets or moons.

Since the movie was made, a new discovery about when life occurred on Earth was made by a team of New Zealand and Australian astrobiologists: New Zealand’s hot springs contribute to discovery of oldest evidence for life on land by looking at what was previously thought to be a marine environment in Pilbara. 

Life is a mystery yet but that never stoped anyone from wanting to know more.

Keep tuned and watch this space!
