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.
