NASA Astrobiology Program Office

NASA’s Astrobiology Program addresses three fundamental questions: How does life begin and evolve? Is there life beyond Earth and, if so, how can we detect it? Experts in astronomy and astrophysics, Earth and planetary sciences, microbiology and evolutionary biology, cosmochemistry, and other relevant disciplines are participating in astrobiology research and helping to advance the enterprise of space exploration.

Metis staff support the NASA Astrobiology Program Office by providing expertise in virtual collaborative research environments, evaluation of user feedback and recommendations for improvement of educational program such as the Astrobiology FameLab events.
