The space-soup hypothesis: Tiny primordial soups on interstellar dust

Alexandre Harvey-Tremblay
Abstract: In the abiogenesis hypothesis, self-replicating RNA is generally assumed to have arisen out of a primordial soup of amino acids no later than 500 million years before life on Earth. Prebiotic molecules such as glycolaldehyde and amino acetonitrile are found to be abundant in nebulas such as Sagittarius B2. In this paper I argue how icy grains within nebulas can act as tiny primordial soups. I further argue that a typical nebula would be...
