As it turns out, the experiment carried out in April 2016 mentioned above is far from the only experiment of its kind. In 2012, a similar experiment was carried out, and researchers found 26 amino acids, six of which were classified as diamino acids. This was important because it could contribute to the construction of peptide nucleic acid, which is the precursor to terrestrial DNA.
I think that the research on the origins of life are very interesting, but far too hypothetical to place too much trust in. I find it hard to believe that scientists know enough about space and its environment to accurately create a situation where life could be created. However, each study makes it seem like a more and more probable cause of life. Personally, I find it incredible. To think that our basic components of life came from space is a little bit strange. Could it mean that life already exists elsewhere in the universe? Is life on earth really just a variation of an extraterrestrial life form? These are questions that could be answered as scientists continue their research on the origins of life on earth.
