Origins: Why are we here?

An excellent three-part series on the origins of life on Earth from Vox’ Unexplainable podcast. Or to make things more personal: Why are we here?

  • Part 1: How did all the water come to that fireball in space we now call Earth?
  • Part 2: What was the first ever living thing? (and what do man-made aliens have to do with it?).
  • Part 3: What do we even mean by Β«lifeΒ»?
