THE formation of pyrite (FeS2), an important factor in determining the global redox balance1, has recently attracted biological interest as a possible direct source of energy for early life2–5. The theory implies that carbon dioxide fixation, in competition with hydrogen formation, can serve as the electron sink for pyrite formation and it seems to be supported by the detection of minute grains ...
