Be a part of the future of Astrobiology!
It’s time to chart the future directions of astrobiology research and you can participate. During the month of May, NASA will be hosting a series of on-line hangouts and discussions focusing on broad themes in astrobiology: Planetary Conditions for Life, Prebiotic Evolution, Early Evolution of Life and the Biosphere, Evolution of Advanced Life, and Astrobiology for Solar Systems Exploration. The online conversations will then be used as the starting point for an in-person/virtual meeting to draft an outline for the Roadmap. After registering here at http://www.astrobiologyfuture.org/, you will be receiving updates about the coming events. Thank you for joining us and making your unique voice heard in this important conversation!
What is astrobiology?
Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe. NASA’s Astrobiology Program addresses three questions: How does life begin and evolve? Is there life beyond Earth and, if so, how can we detect it? What is the future of life on Earth and in the universe?
