Research conducted by astrobiologists, including from the Planetary Habitability Laboratory (PHL) and the Arecibo Observatory, will be highlighted in the upcoming National Geographic series, One Strange Rock. The series presents a “mind-bending, thrilling journey that explores the fragility and wonder of planet Earth” and premieres March 26, 2018.
