Hydrogen bridges the gap between geological and biological processes
  • In a fantastic example of scientific collaboration, three different research teams arrive at the same conclusion - hydrogen is the key to life.
  • All teams attempted to recreate the natural formation of basic life-forming molecules in underwater hydrothermal vents.
  • Using different minerals as catalysts and CO2, researchers found that only after adding Hydrogen did the correct molecules start to form.
  • It is an important finding that shows how geological processes could’ve given start to life, by creating molecules with basic biological processes.
