...Origin of Life One of the most interesting things to study in the field of science is the origin of life. When Oparin first presented the concept “primordial soup “ in 1952, the whole scientific community got excited. Simply put, this theory states that it is possible to create organic molecules whenever there is lack of oxygen in the atmosphere ( Oparin, 1952). In 2009, an article was published in Scientific American titled” Life on Earth”. The authors, Alonso Ricardo and Jack Szostak presented several studies made by scientists citing the RNA’s role to produce life ( p.56 ). In fact, more studies are pursued nowadays by scientists aiming to“ create fully self... Planet Star 61 Virginis and The Origin...
