Title: Rethinking the search for the origins of life: Prebiotic chemistry and early Earth environments
Abstract: Early Earth conditions and the chemistry that led to life were inextricably interwoven. Earth scientists and prebiotic chemists are working together in new ways to understand how and where life first emerged. This new perspective could help guide the search for life elsewhere in the solar system and far beyond.
