Scientists announce breakthrough in determining origin of life on Earth and possibly Mars

Credit: Pixabay/CC0 Public domain Scientists from the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution announced today that ribonucleic acid (RNA), an analog of DNA that was likely the first genetic material of life, forms spontaneously on basalt lava glass. This glass was abundant on Earth 4.35 billion years ago. Similar basalts from this antiquity survive on Mars …
