How and where did life begin? Is it a chemical fluke, unique to Earth, or the product of intriguingly bio-frendly laws governing the entire universe? In this latest far-reaching book, "The fifth miracle", internationally acclaimed physicist and outstanding mysteries -the origin of life.
Davies builds on the latest scientific discoveries and theories to address the larger question: What, exactly, is life?
He then goes on to ask: Is life the inevitable by-product of physical laws, as many scientists maintain, or an almost miraculous accident? Are we alone in the universe, or will life emerge on all Earthlike planets? And if there is life elsewhere in the universe, is it preordained to evolve toward greater complexity and intelligence?
