Astrobiology at NASA

Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe. This multidisciplinary field encompasses the search for habitable environments in our Solar System and habitable planets outside our Solar System, the search for evidence of prebiotic chemistry and life on Mars and other bodies in our Solar System, laboratory and field research into the origins and early evolution of life on Earth, and studies of the potential for life to adapt to challenges on Earth and in space.

The official Web site for the NASA Astrobiology Program is intended to provide all interested people – including researchers, government officials, policy makers, teachers, students, and citizens – accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive information on Program activities, accomplishments, and plans and the institutions, organizations, and people involved in the astrobiology enterprise worldwide.
