[B-AO01] Astrobiology

Tue. May 22, 2018 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall7, Makuhari Messe)

convener:Hikaru Yabuta(Hiroshima University, Department of Earth and Planetary Systems Science), Seiji Sugita(Department of Earth and Planetary Science, Graduate School of Science Sciece, The University of Tokyo), Misato Fukagawa(名古屋大学, 共同), Fujishima Kosuke(Tokyo Institute of Technology, Earth-Life Science Institute)

Twenty years have passed since when the field of Astrobiology, which aims to unveil the origins, evolution, and habitability of life by integrating multidisciplinary fields, was established. Origins of Life are currently being re-conceptualized via expansion of prebiotic chemistry to systems chemistry and chemical space. Besides their relationship to life's building blocks, it is expected to demonstrate the significant roles of organic molecules in the history of planetary formation. The linkages among the variations in chemical compositions of deep-sea hydrothermal environments, geological settings, and ecological systems were systematically investigated. Cassini, which accomplished in the long-term explorations of the planets bearing liquid, had "Grand Finale" this year. Discoveries of extrasolar planets have been dramatically increased to date.
Originally, Astrobiology does not need a specific science category. We therefore aim to make this session so that Earth and Planetary scientists from all the categories join for discussing 'where we came from and where we are going' and for making novel integrated researches.
For the next stage of Astrobiology, presentations on the instrument development in space explorations, comparative studies of solar system and exoplanets, etc, will be very much welcome.
