Séminaire du Jeudi 4 Avril 2013

From Chemistry to Natural History : Is there a driving force ?

Robert Pascal (Université Montpellier) Jeudi 4 Avril - 11 h 00 Salle Manuel Forestini - IPAG

Sixty years after the publications of the double helix structure of DNA and the Miller-Urey experiment, there is still no accepted scientific analysis of the origin of life process. Jacques Monod in “Le hasard et la nécessité” believed that the origin of life was an intrinsically improbable contingent event. But is it scientifically acceptable to give up researching considering that life originated from a violation of the 2nd Law ? With the discovery of exoplanets similar to the Earth, it is time to deal with the issue of the origin of life in a physicochemical way.
