Did Life Begin and Develop? by studying how life arose on
the Earth; determining the general
principles governing the organization of matter into living systems; exploring how life evolves on the molecular,
organism, and ecosystem levels; and determining how the terrestrial biosphere has co-evolved with the Earth.
2) Does Life Exist Elsewhere in the Universe? Establishing limits for life in environments that provide analogues
for conditions on other worlds; determining what makes a planet habitable and how common these worlds are
in the universe; determining how to recognize the signature of life on other worlds; and to determine whether
there is (or once was) life elsewhere in our solar system, particularly on Mars and Europa.
3) What is Life's Future on Earth and Beyond? by determining how ecosystems respond to environmental
change on time-scales relevant to human life on Earth and by understand the response of terrestrial life to
conditions in space or on other planets.
