Abstract
The search for life in the Universe is the fundamental topic of exobiology. The aim of my presentation is to comment on Galactic aspects as well as to explore which types of stars provide environments most consistent with exolife. Besides the sizes of the stellar habitable zones, we will also discuss the potential impact of energetic radiation (i.e., EUV and X-rays) on habitability. Finally, we will study the possibility of exolife for planets in multiple stellar systems, noting that in any of those systems the orbital stability of planets as well as the radiative environments deserves careful considerations.
