Understanding the abiotic fixation of nitrogen and how such fixation can be a supply of prebiotic nitrogen is critical for understanding both the planetary evolution of, and the potential origin of life on, terrestrial planets. As nitrogen is a biochemically essential element, sources of biochemically accessible nitrogen, especially reduced nitrogen, are(More)
One of the fundamental structures of a cell is the membrane. Self-assembling lipid bilayer vesicles can form the membrane of an artificial cell and could also have plausibly assembled prebiotically for the origin of life. Such cell-like structures, that encapsulate some basic subset of the functions of living cells, are important for research to infer the(More)
