This article piqued my interest because of the potential application of this discovery in terraforming or "starting life in other planets. If scientists nail down how life started in pre-historic Earth, maybe we can jumpstart life on other planets.

I never understood this - why is it so important to start life on another planet?

The Earth "dying" is just a matter of time. Even if you don't believe climate change, the sun's gonna burn out as all stars do and when it does, the planet will die. Then there's also the issue of overpopulation and finite resources available.
