*THIS LECTURE HAS BEEN CANCELLED* We don't see life starting in any of the diverse environments now found on Earth, so the chances are that it was a different environment on early Earth that was conducive to life. One could guess at the environment and then use laboratory simulation to investigate its chemistry. An alternative approach is to explore chemistry in an unconstrained way to try and find out if all the molecules needed to kick-start biology can be made under similar conditions...
