    Title

    Advancements in Astrobiology and Space Exploration

    Description

    This session offers an insightful exploration of the latest advancements in astrobiology and space exploration. From ambitious human missions to the Moon and Mars to cutting-edge robotic exploration of Mars subsurface and ocean worlds like Europa, and Enceladus, this session covers all aspects of astrobiology. Therefore, this scientific gathering seeks to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange on extremophiles research, exobiology, biosignature detection, planetary protection, space exploration technology, and the quest to find evidence of habitability and life beyond our home planet.
