Subject: Early planets - Early Life?

Hello List,

Last month we saw:


"Early Galaxies Could Have Planets" which said that an early
galaxy 11 billion light years away could have formed planets,
because the detected oxygen level means that materials heavier
than hydrogen and helium had already formed.

Now we see:


"Alien Planets Older than Our Milky Way Galaxy Challenge
Accepted Theories" which indicates that a 12.8 billion year-old
star actually has planets (well, had 12.8 billion years ago),
that the two detected so far are Jupiter-sized, and that the
experts are a bit upset about how planets could have formed if
heavier materials ('metals') didn't yet exist around the star.

However I think a more interesting question is the possibility
of life, and its composition, given the probable different
ratios of elements at that time.
