    • Do you think we need to solve the problem of the origin of life on Earth before we will be able to remotely detect life on other worlds? Why?

    • I don’t think so. We could detect life via finding biomarkers without any reference to the origin of life. Of course life could also be very different than our life on earth; in this case we must find out what are the pecularities and biomarkers of this sort of life.

    • What if the explanation to the origin of life on earth can only be found in some form of life outside our planet or solar system so I don’t think we need to understand the origin of life on earth before we re able to detect life on other worlds.
