      We don’t know!
      Scientists have tried a lot of whacky experiments to replicate it, but we haven’t found anything yet. One scientist has made amino-acids similar to the stuff life needs by zapping ‘primordial jelly’ (A soup containing all the materials to make life with no real structure. Nobody has been able to replicate the results though 🙁
      Great Question (sorry for the non answer)
