Deftly weaves together cosmology astronomy geology biochemistry and biology to give a complete picture of how life evolved on Earth and how likely it is to exist elsewhere in the Universe.Our Cosmic Origins first published in 1998 traces the remarkable story of the emergence of life and intelligence right through the complex evolutionary history of the Universe. Armand Delsemme weaves together a rich tapestry of science bringing together cosmology astronomy geology biochemistry and biology in this wideranging book. In following the complex chronological story we discover how the first elements formed in the early Universe how stars and planets were born how the first bacteria evolved towards a plethora of plants and animals and how the coupling of the eye and brain led to the development of selfawareness and ultimately intelligence. Professor Delsemme concludes with the tantalising suggestion that the existence of alien life and intelligence is likely and examines our chances of contacting it. This provocative book provides the general reader with an accessible and wideranging account of how life evolved on Earth and how likely it is to exist elsewhere in the Universe.Preface Christian de Duve: Foreword: 1.
