Unformatted text preview: impurities such as cyanide and ammonia. This leads to the formation of pockets of liquid in which the impurities can interact more often. Also, freezing extends the lifetime of molecules, which gives them more time to organize and combine to create things such as RNA. Millers findings are constantly being backed up ever since his discovery. In 2002, Hauke Trinks noticed that the ice surface has different charges, which causes the RNA created to be stacked into a long chain of RNA. Another Scientist, Alexander Vlassov, noticed that an RNA enzyme called hairpin glues other RNA chains together when it is frozen. This evidence supports Millers findings and proves that live might have actually originated in ice....
