Welcome to ABC – AstroBiology Centre
Astrobiology is now one of the fastest developing research areas. The evolution of life on Earth (and the influence of cosmic events like meteorite and comet impacts on it) has always been in, focus of the interest of researchers. Through discoveries of exoplanets during the last decades the question of extraterrestrial life has also gained actuality.
Gianni Cataldi, Dept. of Astronomy, SU, will give a seminar with the title: "Dust and biomarkers from impacts on exoplanets" on Friday April 24 at 15.15. Location TBD (Nordita or Albanova)
Masters degree project
Metals for life
Masters degree project in astrobiology/geochemistry: The base of subseafloor microbial communities is hypothesized to consist of chemolithoautotrophs fueled by reduced chemical species produced by fluid-rock interactions (Gold 1992; Nealson et al., 2005).
