Caltech Scientists: Ultraviolet Light from Stars --"The Catalyst of Molecules Needed for Life"

"On Earth, the sun is the driving source of almost all the life on Earth. Now, we have learned that starlight drives the formation of chemicals that are precursors to chemicals that we need to make life," said Patrick Morris,...
