Contrary to what English biologist Charles Darwin believed, a new study, conducted by researchers at University College of London has projected that life could have originated in deep-sea hydrothermal vents and not warm shallow pools of water.
According to the study first published in ‘Nature Ecology & Evolution’, and reported byScience Daily, scientists drew the conclusion after the team recreated an environment that is similar to underwater vents. The study authors found that the salt water and alkalinity in hydrothermal vents has no negative affect on synthetic cell
