How did life on Earth begin?

This week’s Science Nation video features research at the Center for Chemical Evolution (CCE), headquartered at Georgia Tech. Nicholas Hud and a team from the CCE are working to understand the origins of life on Earth by studying how chain-like chemicals called polymers first came together to form RNA and DNA.

The CCE is co-funded by the NASA Astrobiology program and the National Science Foundation (NSF Centers for Chemical Innovation (CCI) program.
