The resulting evolutive radiations gave raise to a huge number of bacterial lineages that explored and colonized, in different ages, any possible niche on the planet, accounting for modern biodiversity found on Earth.

A more recent experimental study showed, however, that the building blocks required for the first self assembly of life (nucleic acids, proteins and lipids) may have originated from simpler chemical compounds like H2S and HCN, fueled by UV radiation (Patel et al. 2015). Planetary processes, including orbital precessions, continental drifts and tides, as well as collisions with other planetoids or asteroids significantly contributed to construct the early scenarios in which primordial life-forms originated on Earth.
