Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning

Posted by GreenMtnAcademy

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning welcomes Union College Professor George H. Shaw to talk about the emergence of life on Earth. The transition from inanimate molecular mixes to something we would agree is “alive” is one of the most profound events that have occurred on Earth. Based on what we know about modern living systems, two questions immediately arise. First… How do we get sufficient amounts and concentrations of essential raw materials (pre-biotic compounds) such that the formation of self-contained systems has a reasonable chance of emerging? Second… Is there anything in current living systems that may be construed as representative (or critical) to the emergence of life?
