Through fossils we are able to trace back the millions of years when earth was still an “infant” planet and observe the tiny specks of carbon that reveal the very imprint of life itself. As science is not just about rules but experiments, we are able to gather scientific observations that bring us one step closer to discover the beginnings of earth and the great mystery of the origins of life.
