2014 Santander Summer School: Habitable Environments in the UniverseJune 27, 2014
The 2014 International Summer School in Astrobiology was held at the summer campus of the Spanish National University (UIMP), Palacio de la Magdalena, Santander, Spain on June 23-27, 2014.
This year’s theme was “Habitable Environments in the Universe.” The school provided an interdisciplinary examination of the nature and evaluation of habitability, an environment’s ability to support life. Topics covered included life’s requirements and the limits of life, the factors that affect habitability for local and global environments, and potentially habitable environments in our Solar System and on extrasolar planets.
