The NASA Astrobiology Program investigates the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe.
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.
