Enter Life — 1981

Nov 09 2011

I love this short ani­ma­tion by Faith Hub­ley from 1981 and I’m sure I was shown this at school some time in the mid 80’s.

The story starts at the for­ma­tion of the solar sys­tem, show­ing how Earth was the only planet placed just right in dis­tance from the sun. It con­tin­ues show­ing how amino acid chains formed pro­teins, pro­teins to cells, cells to asex­ual repro­duc­tion, and asex­ual repro­duc­tion to sex­ual reproduction.
