Early career researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) have launched a new group that will gather scientists from diverse backgrounds to explore topics in astrobiology. The new ExplOrigins (Exploration and Origins) Group is aimed at expanding the Georgia Tech Astrobiology community into the greater Atlanta area. ExplOrigins will act as a networking resources for young researchers and is described as the “next stage of evolution for careers in astrobiology.”

For decades, Georgia Tech has been a hub of research supported by the NASA Astrobiology Program. Currently the institute houses scientists in the Prebiotic Chemistry and Early Earth Environment Consortium (PCE3), the Center for the Origin of Life (COOL), and Oceans Across Space and Time (OAST).
