Put simply, Astrobiology is a diverse and multidisciplinary field that seeks to understand the origins of life. Sometimes it manifests as a searchfor life on other planets, other times it might be a deep ocean dive. Astrobiology, the journal, is the “leading peer-reviewed international journal for astronomers, biologists, chemists, geologists, microbiologists, paleontologists, and planetary scientists.” Best of all, readers can download dozens of peer-reviewed articles, ranging from tributes to pioneers in the field to intricate studies of ocean vent microbes, for free. Recent articles have focused on the debate over how to define life and the implications for the detection of potential bacterial life on one of Jupiter’s moons. Each issue features a tribute, a News & Views article, and an education article. This will be added to Astronomy Resources Subject Tracer™. From The Scout Report, Copyright Internet Scout 1994-2015.
