Equinox Following Up Life and Death

Rob follows up thoughts about the origin of life, and tells us all about the new research/model that tried and failed to simulate the origin of life. And to top it off, many want to know when scientists will solve the problem of death so we can all live forever. So, will they???

Equinox The Origin of Life

Usually, scientists like to tell us how life started on planet Earth and how it might exist elsewhere in the universe.

Joseph and Rob discuss the difficulty figuring out life’s beginning, and in the grand scheme of things how terribly unlikely it is to find life anywhere.
