    Issue #4 maintains the gorgeous look and feel of the series, and continues the captivating story of Exo and Astrobiology. This installment explores astrobiology’s role in missions to the outer Solar System. See how science helped shape the exploration of gas giants and icy worlds beyond our system’s main asteroid belt.

    While spacecraft plied the distant corners of the Solar System, astrobiologists made startling discoveries about the limits of life’s survival on Earth. Astrobiologists used these discoveries to help interpret the data that robotic explorers sent back from locations like Jupiter’s moon Europa. The results completely changed the way we view life’s potential outside of the traditional ‘habitable zone’ around stars.

    Astrobiology: The Story of our Search for Life in the Universe was produced by the NASA Astrobiology Program to celebrate the 50th anniversary of astrobiology at NASA.
