The origin of life is the black hole of biology. All life on Earth is driven by the conversion of photons to chemical bond energy. Amazingly, we don’t understand that process. In this lecture, I will examine the bio/geophysics of oxygenic photosynthesis Earth, and how it came to be the force of life for all of us animals.
