Summary and Info
Astrobiology is the study of life in the universe. It includes the fields of astronomy, physics, biology, geology, paleontology, and many others, such as microbiology. The curiosity of scientists who wonder if life exists somewhere besides Earth has created this new science. Since we cannot yet travel to other planets, astrobiologists must begin with the only life we know about: life on Earth.
