We are planning to host the Astrobiology Australia Meeting this year ONLINE! This event will bring together researchers interested in Astrobiology from across the Australiasian and Asian regions, to develop and exchange ideas on how life in the universe could originate and persist.
How did life begin on Earth? Does life exist beyond our home planet? How do we search for it? These are the really tough questions astrobiologists want to answer by studying life as we know it. Check out the following link to know more: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3HN_zx4JJfM&feature=youtu.be
