Designed to help students and teachers better appreciate space exploration, this eBook discusses the different hypotheses regarding the origins of life on Earth and the possibility of life on other worlds. Readers will engage in a foundational text that outlines the major approaches and schools of thought in astrobiology, a relatively new and evolving field of study. These concepts include the notion of cosmic evolution, the anthropic principle, the principle of mediocrity, the panspermia hypothesis, the Gaia hypothesis, and the extraterrestrial catastrophe theory.
