  1. He's not just talking about making amino acids or other bulding blocks of life, he's talking about an actual replicating cell made in a laboratory, literally making life from scratch in a reproducible way, mind blowing if its really possible.
  2. in case u missed this on Radio 4s Inside Science one researcher at least is very optimistic about creating life from scratch in a lab: go to 14.27 mins http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05wyq6g the whole segment starts at 6.00 mins

  4. RE Is this a Harpoon cable or something else ? Spooky that I'm struggling to think what natural phenomenon could create such a regular structure out in space. Maybe reinforced concrete came to Earth via comets!
  5. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-29932609 haven't posted for ages but this pic really caught my imagination. what a privilege to witness the birth of a solar system. who knows what will happen there billions of years from now, maybe another Earth might form there, amazing!
