Course Description:

Astrobiology is an interdisciplinary scientific field concerned with the origins, early evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe. Astrobiology considers the question of whether extraterrestrial life exists, and how humans can detect it if it does. Through experiments and projects, we will answer 4 fundamental questions: What is life? What does it take for life to exist? How can we find places that have life? If the life is intelligent how can we communicate with it?
