    Title

    Astrobiology and Exploration

    Description

    Space exploration planning now includes ambitious goals like human missions to the Moon and Mars, and sophisticated robotic exploration of targets relevant for astrobiology such as the Mars subsurface and the primary ocean worlds Europa, Enceladus, and Titan. Astrobiology is, therefore, becoming a space flight science, ready for direct measurements of habitability and the presence of life off Earth in many places. The session invites papers related to astrobiology, biomarkers, life detection, and planetary protection.
