There are a plethora of journals publishing scientific results relevant to astrobiology. It is important to seek advice from your advisors and colleagues so that you can make an educated choice when publishing your data.Research in Exobiology is centered on the origin and early evolution of life, the potential of life to adapt to different environments, and the implications for life elsewhere.Blue, but deadly: the gas giant exoplanet HD 189733b, which is superhot and likely has rains of glass. AZURE is the first of eight sounding rocket missions that will study the flow of particles in the ionosphere. Here, a NASA-funded sounding rocket launched straight into an aurora over Venetie, Alaska, in 2014.The Australian Center for Astrobiology maintains the largest Mars Yard in the world at Sydney's Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences.

NASA MISSIONSExploring the Red Planet

The rovers and spacecraft we’ve sent to Mars have found evidence the planet was warmer in the past, with lakes and rivers. Was there life there? Future exploration may find evidence for that as well.

The facts and figures —37%

The gravity on Mars is only 37 percent of Earth’s gravity. Not only could you leap three times higher on Mars, but this lower gravity is one reason why Olympus Mons became the biggest volcano in the solar system.
