We will use this group to document and conserve areas of the Earth that are critical for astrobiology research. Most of us know that there are field sites of significance for astrobiology research all around us, but there is no repository listing these locations or documenting their significance. We will use this group to coordinate our efforts as we describe where these sites can be found, what kind of research can be conducted at these sites, and why they must be protected for future…See More
Did you know that conditions that would kill a human only tickle the blood of Turkish Mr. Spock? Neither did I!
