Paul Davies on the Origins of Life

Paul Davies on origins of life at For Thought: Origins How did life begin, and what sort of process can turn a complex mixture of chemicals into a genuinely living organism? The origin of life remains one of the great mysteries of science. We may never have a full account of life's murky beginnings, but a lot hinges on the answer. If life emerges readily in Earth-like conditions, then it may have started many times on Earth* – but if life is a bizarre statistical fluke, we may be alone in the universe after all. http://sydneyoperahouse.com/ideas Subscribe and find more videos from Ideas at the House: http://www.youtube.com/ideasatthehouse Get a new talk every week on our podcast: Audio - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640445035 Video - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640444896 Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/IdeasAtTheHouse Twitter - https://twitter.com/ideasatthehouse
