About Us

UCSC’s Astrobiology program is a collaborative, interdisciplinary initiative dedicated to the study of the origin, evolution, and distribution of life in the universe. By probing how life forms, identifying the markers of living worlds, and observing our local astronomical neighborhood, UCSC astrobiologists bring a 21st century approach to bear on an ancient question: are we alone in the universe?
