The Cascadia Astrobiology Initiative
|Astrobiology is an
exciting field of scientific research and science education surrounding
the search for life beyond Earth. Astrobiology is different from
exobiology in that it is more than the study of the organisms
themselves, but broadens the field to include the study of the
environments that may sustain extraterrestrial life and the physical
factors that maintain those environments. Astrobiology mates the
fields of biology, geology, atmospheric science, astronomy,
oceanography, chemistry and others in a fascinating interdisciplinary
search to understand how life forms and evolves, and where in the
universe living organisms exist.
Students taking Astronomy at Cascadia Community College complete a final project whereby they research a specific field of astrobiology research and create web pages designed to educate the public. They are wonderful pieces of work. Enjoy.
