The
Mystery
of
Life's
Origin
presenb
an
extraordinary new
analy-ais
of
an
age-old
question: How did life
start
on
earth?
The
authorsdeal forthrightly
and
brilliantly with
the
major problems confront-ing scientiets today
in
their search for life'a origins. They under-stand
the
impaese
in
current laboratory and theoretical research
and
suggest
a
way
around it. Their argumente
are
cogent, original,and compelling.
This
book
is
sure to stimulate much animated dis-cussion among scientists
and
laymen.
It
is
very
likely that
research
on
life's origins will
move
in
somewhat different directions once theprofessionals
have
read this important work.
The
modern experimental
study
of
the origin
of
the
firat
life
onearth is now entering
its
fourth
decade,
if
we
date
the
inception
of
this
field
of
research
to
Stanley Miller's pioneering workia
the
early
1950s.
Since Miller's identification
of
several (racemic) protein-forming amino acids in his electric discharge apparatus, numerouafollow-up studies
have
been
conducted. Conforming in
varying
degrees
to the requirements of
the
so-called "simulation
paradigm,"
these experiments
have
yielded detectable amounts of
most
of
the
major kinds of biochemical substance
as
well as
a
variety
of organicmicroscopic structures suggested
to
be similar
to
the historical
pre-
cursors of the first living
cells.
This
program
of
research
can
be
regarded
as
a
natural
extension
of Darwin's evolutionary views of the last
century.
The
goal
of
thework
is
to find plausible unifomit&anmechanism~ for
the
gradual
spontaneous generation
of
living
matter
from relatively simplemolecules thought to
have
been
abundant
on
the
surface
of
the
primitive earth.
