Deep Space Capable of Creating Linked Pairs of Amino Acids --Essential Building Blocks of Life

A new experiment simulating conditions in deep space reveals that the complex building blocks of life could have been created on icy interplanetary dust and then carried to Earth, jump-starting life. Chemists from the University of California, Berkeley, and the...
