Concept of Astrobiology

As a result of developments in extrasolar planet observations, astrobiology research to explore "life in the Universe" and uncover its mysteries has become a pressing subject.

Astrobiology Center (ABC), established in 2015, advances this field by combining disciplines, promotes research into extrasolar planets and life both outside and within the Solar System, and develops observational instruments for these purposes.
