The essential legacy of the Primordial Soup was twofold: It simplified the notion of the origin of life to a single pivotal event, and then it proposed that that event—the step that occurred after the molecules were made—was a result of chance. In the standard language, life is to be seen, in the end, as a “frozen accident.”. Frank Salisbury. One of the few serious, scientific attempts at such calculations is to be found in the oft-cited and vastly out-of-date article "Natural Selection and the Complexity of the Gene" by Frank Salisbury in Nature (vol. , Oct. 25, , pp. ). The purpose of this article was to identify a scientific problem and suggest possible avenues of research toward a solution.

by taking the reader on a fascinating journey from the birth of the Universe, via the origins of life, to alternative homes for alien life forms in our solar system. Life in the Universe is a whistle−stop tour of the field of astrobiology; defined as the study . Extraterrestrial life is hypothetical life which may occur outside of Earth and which did not originate on Earth. Such life might range from simple prokaryotes (or comparable life forms) to beings with civilizations far more advanced than humanity. The Drake equation speculates about the existence of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe. The science of extraterrestrial life in all its.
