The hyperbranched polymer scaffold could have been the early primitive base for the emergence of life. @t_z_jia @CerberaOdollam @josue_nanotech
How do you train a computer to identify the type of Mars rocks it sees? #Mars #geology #machinelearning #deeplearning
How can we search for life as we don’t know it? It's hard to look for signs of life beyond Earth. It's a little easier if we assume that life out there is like Earth life. But what if it isn't? A team of scientists recently developed a method of detection for identifying life forms we haven't yet imagined.

Have you heard of Panspermia? The hypothesis says that life originated somewhere else and travelled to Earth on rocks through space. #Tardigrades help us understand if it's possible!
Researchers discovered computer-led chemical analysis of a sample is a powerful tool for searching for ET biochemistry without making assumptions about it.
Cell structures similar to membranes can arise from non-living substances under suitable conditions.
An observational technique called ‘beam-forming’ detects exoplanetary radio emissions that allow researchers to calculate exoplanets’ magnetic fields.
A new way to detect ET life using chemical profiles Rather than detecting one chemical at a time, scientists taught machine learning algorithms what different mixtures of compounds from living and non-living sources “look like” to chemical analyzers. The computer then used those fingerprints to correctly identify living and non-living samples in the lab!
Researchers found a new way to tell the difference between the chemicals of life and the chemicals of non-life...using machine learning!
Scientists are using computer programs to understand our early beginnings. Click on the link to see how they are doing it, and how they might discover the genetic chemistry of life in the cosmos!
Space is a hostile place. It has numerous stressors which make it seem impossible for Earth-like life to thrive there. Some of these stresses include harmful ultraviolet radiation, anaerobic conditions (environment devoid of oxygen), high temperature, and varying pressure. Extremophiles are organisms that live in…
