Astrobiology (general): May 2017

Contrary to what NASA may want you to think, the word "Astrobiology" was used decades before NASA began using it to describe the study of extraterrestrial life.

This book "Astrobiology" - "Aстробиология" was published (in Russian) in 1953 in the USSR.

The photos below illustrate the topics that the book covered.

The search for habitable exoplanets and life beyond the Solar System is one of the most compelling scientific opportunities of our time.
