EANA trail guide in astrobiology: search for a second genesis of life
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 01 December 2005
The European Astrobiology Network Association (EANA) coordinates and promotes astrobiology in the 17 European countries that are member of the organization. Astrobiology includes the study of the origin, evolution and distribution of life in the Universe. It is a multi-disciplinary science that encompasses the disciplines of chemistry, biology, palaeontology, geology, atmospheric physics, planetary physics and stellar physics. The open questions to be addressed and the steps ahead in cosmochemistry, star and planet formation, the chemistry of life's origin, the study of bacterial life as a reference and the search for habitats and biosignatures beyond the Earth are presented.
