Abstract of the talk:
Abstract of the talk: The fundamental question in Astrobiology deals with figuring out how life came about on our planet. The story is really old, intriguing, complex and happens to be a very fascinating scientific mystery. It involves understanding how the transition from chemistry to biology would have occurred on Earth before any life as we know resulted. In this talk, the speaker will outline the current understanding prevalent in the field; a non-trivial puzzle thatis still missing several pieces. Finally, this talk will get us thinking about our attitude towards the only home we might ever know!
