Origin of life video

I just did a reddit Science AMA today, and whenever you talk about evolution, invariably the question of the origin of life comes up. It's not my field, as I am not a chemist, but here is a great video explaining a model of how life could have formed spontaneously from chemical elements in the pre-biotic Earth. It is based on research from Jack Szostak's lab.
From now on I will be pointing to this whenever I'm asked how the first cells came about.
