About this book

Language: French

This book tells the story of a group geologists who, when travelling to Gabon to do a simple sampling of ancient sediments, made a startling discovery: fossils of complex structures older than 2 billion years. These fossils represent the oldest form of multicellular organisms and challenge the whole story of the emergence of life on Earth so far!

Summary in French:
Ce livre est dédié à l’aventure, même si les explorateurs qui l’ont menée sont d’un genre un peu particulier. Il s’agit de géologues curieux qui, partis au Gabon pour réaliser un simple échantillonnage de sédiments anciens, ont fait une découverte stupéfiante : des fossiles de structures complexes âgés de plus de 2 milliards d’années. Ces fossiles représentent la plus ancienne forme d’organismes multicellulaires et remettent en cause toute l’histoire jusque-là admise de l’émergence de la vie sur Terre !
