Letter from Thomas H. Jukes to Francis Crick


Title:
Letter from Thomas H. Jukes to Francis Crick
Description:
In his letter Jukes recorded his favorable reception of Crick's book, Life Itself: Its Origin and Nature (1981), in which Crick speculated that life on earth might have evolved from microscopic organisms seeded here deliberately by an alien civilization. More than offering a far-fetched hypothesis, Crick's book was a meditation on scientific method and on the convergence of scientific disciplines needed to explain such difficult problems as the origins of life on earth.
