I definitely enjoy reading about the possible environments of the Hadean and Archean time periods. Global glaciations are known for several milestones in the evolution of life, so it doesn't surprise me that somehow life could have arose in ice.
I believe i watched a documentary on the possibilities of life living in ice, and it linked all the way back to the first existence of the beginning molecules of life. Eventually they applied it to the possibility of life coming about and existing on the frozen moon Europa, i found that quite intriguing. It seems like the arrival of life is getting less and less uncommon because life quite possibly can arise in an incredible range of temperatures and environments.
yea, miller was successful with a sample he put in the freezer for years
"Other research suggests a colder start to life. Work by Leslie Orgel and colleagues on the synthesis of purines has shown that freezing temperatures are advantageous, due to the concentrating effect for key precursors such as hydrogen cyanide. Research by Stanley Miller and colleagues suggested that while adenine and guanine require freezing conditions for synthesis, cytosine and uracil may require boiling temperatures. Based on this research, Miller suggested a beginning of life involving freezing conditions and exploding meteorites."
Louis J. Allamandola did similar experiment
but most researchers would say that it contributed to early inventory of organic molecules, though it is doubt for live happened under those conditions
