Life on earth and other planetary bodies

A trio of editors [Professors from Austria, Germany and Israel] present "Life on Earth and Other Planetary Bodies". The contributors are from twenty various countries and present their research on life here as well as the possibility for extraterrestrial life. This volume covers concepts such as life's origin, hypothesis of Panspermia and of life possibility in the Cosmos. The topic of extraterrestrial life is currently 'hot, and the object of several congresses and conferences. While the diversity of "normal" biota is well known, life on the edge of the extremophiles is more limited.

  • ""Are we alone?" or "Is Anybody Out There?" have been permanent quandaries among mankind from the ancient times to now. In this book, we are discussing the diversity of life on Earth and possibly on other celestial bodies. We always consider the phenomena of life as we know it on Earth, with the requirements for it being liquid water and carbon-based biochemistry, plus other nutrients and energy sources. In this presentation, we precluded the possibility of life as we do not know it. It is a formidable challenge to find other habitable planets or satellites, which might contain signatures of life (de Vera and Seckbach, 2013). In addition, of finding water in the search for life, we have also to search for biomolecules in our galaxy. Indeed, astrobiologists have discovered regions in our galaxy that might have the potential for producing very complex organic molecules and the starting point for the development of life. Let us examine life on Earth and compare it with some extraterrestrial conditions."
