NASA Astrobiology Roadmap Reports
The latest version of NASA’s Astrobiology Roadmap and exciting reports on new strategies for detecting biosignatures in Earth rocks highlight the diverse content of the August 2008 (Volume 8, Number 4) issue of Astrobiology, a peer-reviewed journal published by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. The latest version of NASAs Astrobiology Roadmap, a comprehensive document intended to guide and integrate research and technology development across groups from academia, government, and private institutions, is highlighted in this issue. The Roadmap defines research objectives aimed at answering three main questions: how does life begin and evolve; does life exist elsewhere in the universe; and what is the future of life on Earth and beyond?
