Vitamin B4 Back in the Day

Here’s what most people know about adenine - it is one of two purines in DNA and it’s paired with thymine via two hydrogen bonds. But did you know that NASA has actually found traces of adenine in space rocks? Experiments in the lab that simulate space conditions show that this molecule naturally forms when asteroid ice is beamed with high energy light. So, were the building blocks of life extraterrestrial? Could there be life elsewhere that formed the exact same way? Hold onto the mystery of life with our adenine necklace. You can also give it as a gift; it’s perfect for astrochemists, astrophysicists, organic chemists, and budding NASA scientists.
