Chemistry in Pictures: Sea creatures?
You might think these structures are sea creatures if you didn’t see the text in these images. Rather, they are the results of simple precipitation reactions in which a drop of one solution was added to a Petri dish containing another solution. It’s no wonder that Stéphane Leduc, a French scientist, thought that life could be related to simple chemical reactions such as chemical gardens over 100 years ago.
