Everything you think you know about the origin of life may be wrong. The perfect conditions for life may have been a "nuclear geyser" powered by an ancient uranium deposit, not the primordial soup of an ancient pond. Nicholas Hud, of the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, tells Cosmos that life may not have originated in water, as originally thought, but in an alternately wet and dry environment. The perfect place? A geyser.
