This course aims to introduce the fundamental aspects of astrobiology, which is an interdisciplinary field of research, searching primarily for the origin of life on Earth, as well as searching for any signatures of life elsewhere. Astrobiology also includes technological research fields, especially related to travelling and living in extreme environments, such as Mars. These technological developments would also be beneficial for our well-being on this planet in the future. This course will not only introduce the current knowledge of the origin and evolution of life on Earth, and also provide up-to-date information about searching life forms outside Earth. The course will also include a term project in groups related to astrobiological research.
