Something new to chew on? From Georgia Institute of Technology
If it pans out, is it a source of life or is it what keeps life that is already there functioning?
"So audacious was Marcus Bray's experiment that even he feared it would fail." ... "The study swapped out all its magnesium, tabula rasa, and showed that the system, centering on the ribosome, would have thrived basically as it is today 4 billion years ago at the foundations of life on Earth."
And the last quote: "Eat your magnesium; it's good for you." From those quotes comes my question above.
Georgia Tech. We used to sing a song about Georgia Tech. But that's another topic. I wait to hear the experts' take on the experiment.
