Understanding how and why patterns arise in biological and inanimate systems could give scientist important clues about how life evolved and continues to sustain itself. In July 1993, a researcher at the Los Alamos National Laboratory modelled a simple system of reacting and diffusing chemicals, and observed for the first time a pattern of self-replicating spots. This pattern has been confirmed in laboratory experiments and is probably the most complex pattern observed to date.
