Unanswered –“Can Life in the Universe Be Explained By Physics?”

"We are Spaceships" --Extraterrestrial Viruses May Have Influenced Origin and Evolution of Life (Weekend Feature)

 

“One can best feel in dealing with living things how primitive physics still is,” said Albert Einstein. “Can life be explained in terms of physics or will it always be a mystery? And if physics can explain life, is existing physics up to the job, or might it require something fundamentally new – new concepts, new laws even?” asks Arizona State University cosmologist, theoretical physicist, and astrobiologist, Paul Davies answering Einstein.

“A Bizarre Glow” --Cosmic Explosion Unleashes More Energy Than the Sun During Its 10-Billion Year Life

 

In a half-second flash of light in May of this year, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope detected the most powerful explosion since the Big Bang –the brightest infrared light from a short gamma-ray burst ever seen with a bizarre glow that is more luminous than previously thought was possible, unleashing more energy in a blink of an eye than the Sun will produce over its entire 10-billion-year lifetime. This near-infrared emission was 10 times brighter than predicted, defying conventional models.
