Spreading the Word: Our Last Universal Common Ancestor – LUCA

In this week’s “Spreading the Word”, I share with you a video. It is a fascinating story exploring the origins of… well, of all of us and all life around us! Who was our last universal common ancestor? Lovingly nicknamed Luca. After many years of research, we have gained some interesting insights on what was our ultimate forebear like. Enjoy!

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Thursday I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My Thursdays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
