Join Science Writer Michael Marshall for a talk about  "How life on Earth began: A short guide to one of the biggest questions in science"

There is life everywhere on Earth, but billions of years ago when the planet formed there was none. So how did lifeless matter give rise to living organisms? This is one of the hardest mysteries in modern science. But over the last 100 years, a small band of committed researchers have tried to solve it. Michael Marshall tells the story of science's struggle to understand our ultimate origins, and asks what life's beginning can tell us about life elsewhere in the universe.
