The history of evolution and origin of life on Earth – a review

Authors

  • Annissa Van Wieren

Abstract

Evolution is an ongoing process throughout the entire universe ever since the universe appeared 14 billion years ago. Galaxies, stars, and planets eventually appear in the universe and there is continuous debate whether life originated in space or in Earth, or perhaps on other planets. This review paper will outline how the universe and life appeared, and how life keeps evolving and becoming more complex. Major known events on Earth that led to significant changes will be pointed out starting from our last universal common ancestor (LUCA) to today’s humans.
