Join us for Astrobiology Magazine’s latest podcast: “Naked Astrobiology” with our host Simon Mitton. In this broadcast Mitton interviews Frances Westall of the Centre de Biophysique Moleculaire in Orleans, France. They discuss her search for the earliest traces of life in the Earth’s most ancient rocks, and how fossilized microbial mats provide a vast amount of information about life’s slimy beginnings.
