Astrobiology is that the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and way forward for life within the universe: extraterrestrial life and life on Earth. This knowledge domain field encompasses the hunt for liveable environments in our system and liveable planets outside our system, the hunt for proof of prebiotic chemistry, laboratory and field analysis into the origins and early evolution of life on Earth, and studies of the potential for keeps to adapt to challenges on Earth and in location. Astrobiology addresses the question of whether or not life exists on the far side Earth, and the way humans will find it if it will.(The term space biology is analogous however a lot of specific â it covers the hunt for life on the far side Earth, and also the effects of extraterrestrial environments on living things).
