Contents A brave new world -- Life as we know it -- How to create a planet fit for life -- The story of life -- Alien worlds on our doorstep -- Everything is relative! -- Searching the solar system -- Extraterrestrial worlds : life not as we know it -- Is the truth really out there? -- The next generation.
Summary Ultimately, we need to figure out what is next for humanity. Our logical move is to break free of the confines of the Earth and colonise another body in the Solar System, such as the Moon or Mars. How and when will we do this? Or is it all just science fiction? These questions, in a nutshell, make up the core of astrobiology-- the study of the origins and evolution and biology of life elsewhere in the universe, and the search for it. This book is an accessible introduction to this most fascinating of all the astro-sciences-- are we alone in the Universe?
