Astrobiology is study of the origin, evolution, distribution, & destiny of life in the universe.
It attempts to answer 3 fundamental questions:
How did (does) life begin and develop?
Does life exist elsewhere in the universe?
What is life's future on Earth and beyond?
While these questions may be age-old, it is now, for the first time in human history,
that advances in the biological sciences, space exploration, and astronomy
make it possible for us to realistically attempt to answer them.
