Mar 31 Recap

It was the last meeting of this term. Prof. Marshall McCall was our host. He mainly discussed about the left-handed chiralities of the amino acids and some attempted explanations. One possible solution was mentioned in Nature's 'News and Views' here (the actually link to the Nature paper is broken). Another more recent explanation involved a supernova explosion, a magnetic field and molecular clouds. The paper can be found here.
