"For millenia, the origin of life has been an active topic of fascination, debate and investigation. Only recently has substantial progress been made that begins to put together a consistent and coherent picture for the time period leading up to a 'habitable solar system'; the first 50-100 million years after the Sun and planets formed. Much remains unclear, however, of the nature of this primordial evolution that set the stage for life.
Moderated by Dr. Stephen Benner (Distinguished Fellow at the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution) and Prof. Stephen Mojzsis (Collaborative Research in Origins at CU Boulder), this discussion by the leading thinkers in the field of life's origins will synthesize what we know, what we don't, and where we are headed.
Hosted by The John Templeton Foundation / FfAME Origins program, this event will be held at the Fiske Planetarium at CU Boulder - admission is FREE."
