The Curiosity Rover is basically an astrobiologist on wheels. What has it figured out about habitable environments and the potential for life on Mars? Watch the video to find out! #NASA   #astrobiology

What's cooler than the ice on Europa, Mars and other bodies in the Solar System? The fact that we've found life living under glaciers right here on Earth. #NASA   #astrobiology  
Robertson Glacier.jpg. Robertson Glacier, Canada. Image Credit: Eric Boyd. Despite the fact that Earth has experienced widespread glaciation throughout its history and that 11% of Earth's surface today is covered with ice, active microbial communities in subglacial systems have yet to be fully ...

Jupiter's moon Europa is an icy world in our Solar System that is yet to be fully explored. Astrobiologists are designing trans-solar system submersibles today to enable exploration tomorrow! #NASA #astrobiology  
Someday, a tiny submarine barely larger than two soda cans could be one of the first visitors to Jupiter's icy moon Europa.

Sorry, but we won't be posting or replying to comments on Google+ during the government shutdown. Also, all public NASA activities and events are cancelled or postponed until further notice. We'll be back as soon as possible! Sorry for the inconvenience. http://notice.USA.gov 
Note: this is not an official notice. If a lapse in funding occurs on October 1, 2013, this disclaimer will be removed and the page will serve as an official notice. Due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available. We sincerely regret this inconvenience.

Opal: the key to understanding past habitable environments on Mars? Australia's national gemstone may be a great way to learn about the Red Planet! #NASA   #astrobiology  
Research that sheds light on how Australian opals formed indicates the red dirt in the land Down Under might be similar to the red surface of Mars.

Science fiction has become reality with the Kepler Mission and exoplanet research! Our friends at Big Picture Science talk about exoplanets in this week's show, and demystify the search for worlds in galaxies far, far away... #NASA   #astrobiology

Have you ever wondered what a growing planet looks like? Today's your lucky day because NASA's Hubble Space Telescope set its sights on a system that may actively be growing a planet far away from its low-mass parent star!  Photo credit: #NASA

Story
Tagline
The NASA Astrobiology Program investigates the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe.
Introduction
Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the Universe. This is a field where scientists ask questions like, “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?”

Astrobiology bridges many different sciences, from biology to geology to astronomy. This page will share the excitement and discoveries of this interdisciplinary science as we explore our own Earth, Solar System and the Universe beyond.

Commenting Guidelines:
We invite you to post comments on our page. We ask that you be courteous and stay on topic. Inappropriate language or posts that harass other individuals will be removed.
