Title: Theory and experiment in exobiology. Authors: Schwartz, Alan W. Publication: Groningen, Wolters-Noordhoff. []-Publication Date: 00/ Title: Theory and experiment in exobiology, Volume_1. Authors: Schwartz, A. W. Publication: Theory and experiment in exobiology, Volume_1., by Schwartz, A. W. Astrobiology, formerly known as exobiology, is an interdisciplinary scientific field concerned with the origins, early evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe. Astrobiology considers the question of whether extraterrestrial life exists, and if it does, how humans can detect it.

To them, the only purpose of the Universe was the production of intelligence, and they were apt to talk sneeringly about purely astronomical phenomena, 'Mere dead matter' was one of their favourite phrases.”. Theory and experiment in evolutionary biology. Robert N. Brandon 1 Cited by: The quest for life in the universe touches on fundamental hopes and fears. It touches on the essence of what it means to formulate a theory, grasp a concept, and have an imagination. This book traces the history of the science of this area and the development of new schools in philosophy.

NASA: Public Domain. Enceladus. Saturn’s sixth largest moon is an intriguing possible home for extra-terrestrial life. Like Europa, it is believed to harbour oceans hidden beneath an exterior of ice, as reported by NASA in 11 Using evidence obtained by the Cassini-Huygens probe, they believe that the moon has a 10 kilometre thick sub-surface ocean of liquid water in its south pole. exobiology or astrobiology, search for extraterrestrial life life, although there is no universal agreement as to a definition of life, its biological manifestations are generally considered to be organization, metabolism, growth, irritability, adaptation, and reproduction. Miller's experiment Chemical evolution and the origin of life: Current ideas about the origin of life are based on the Oparin-Haldane theory of chemical evolution, in which life arose gradually in a reducing atmosphere. The solar system probably formed from a swirling nebula, which formed into the sun at the center and the planets peripherally. The Miller–Urey experiment (or Miller experiment) was a chemical experiment that simulated the conditions thought at the time () to be present on the early Earth and tested the chemical origin of life under those conditions. The experiment at the time supported Alexander Oparin's and J. B. S. Haldane's hypothesis that putative conditions on the primitive Earth favoured chemical reactions.
