The Astrobiology Science Conference (AbSciCon) 2000

By Keith Cowing
April 3, 2000

Welcome to the first Astrobiology Science Conference! Astrobiology is a novel approach to the scientific study of the living universe. It seeks to understand the origin and evolution of life on Earth, to determine if life exists elsewhere in the universe, and to predict the future of life on Earth and in the rest of the universe. To this end it relies on a diversity of disciplines, and has inspired new metadisciplines.
