Silicon based life (simulated in-silico?)

Postby wuffy68 » Wed May 05, 2021 9:17 am

The results of the Urey-Miller Nanoreactor simulation from seven years ago were fascinating (with over 600 new molecular compounds found):

Was there ever any consideration of running the same experiment using silicon based reactions? There's been a lot of debate whether silicon based life would even be possible lately (again) - so wouldn't this help narrow the possibilities?

Thank you - keep up the good work here on Earth. This would be an interesting diversion regardless.
