The machine always makes you feel optimistic...?

When did it start?

Oh, of course, it’s scientific progress that does that.

Lucky UK; you don’t have Trump. You did have Sydney Chapman.

Whether anything will come of this new machine is debatable. But it always makes me feel optimistic for the future.

Comment by Mrs.B on June 17, 2018 at 2:30pm

Yeah the continuing research is great!

Comment by Stephen on June 17, 2018 at 11:34am

One can't help but wonder when it will be that we will be able to work out how life started on the early earth. Fascinating branch of Science.

Thanks for the article Mrs.B.

A note to the late, lamented Sidney Chapman:

If your mathematics conflict with scientific facts, too bad for your mathematics. The universe will not rearrange itself to comply with your error.

— A paraphrase on an April 13th post

Thank you, Mrs. B.

Simple chemical process that may have led to the origin of life on Earth
Posted: 13 Jun 2018 07:19 AM PDT
Research has shown that reactions of alpha-hydroxy acids, similar to the alpha-amino acids that make up modern proteins, form large polymers easily under conditions presumed prevalent on early Earth. These alpha-hydroxy acid polymers may have aided in the formation of living systems on early Earth.

Even if we could travel across the disc of the Milky way we would eventually come to the centre of the Galaxy and be sucked into the Black Hole. I wouldn't fancy our chances after that. Lol.
