Title: The new science of life's origins and distribution in the universe
Abstract: The study of the origins of life and its possible existence beyond the earth has long lived in the liminal space between science, quasi-scientific speculation, and nonsense. Nevertheless, the questions that motivate this field are among the greatest unanswered problems in the natural sciences and human thought more broadly. The modern era of this subject began in the 1990’s with a wave of top-down funding agency investments and several highly visible and equally ludicrous false starts. But recently this subject has transformed its scope, methods and opportunities, and has radically expanded and re-organized its connections to more established, rigorous fields, including astronomy, synthetic chemistry, geology, geochemistry, and the biological ‘omics’ disciplines. The last decade has seen dramatic progress on several interconnected fronts, yet the field remains ravenous for its first truly transformative discovery. The central questions remain: What will constitute definitive evidence of life’s origins on earth and existence in the wider universe; and, how should we best seek that evidence?
