How did life begin on Earth, and when did it happen?
Are there other worlds where life could have started?
What improvements have we made in the ability to discover life on other worlds?
Will we find signs of life in the galaxy? What about intelligent life?

In the last 20 years, advances in the studies of astronomy and the origins of life are now bringing this fascinating possibility of finding life outside the Earth from a science-fiction theme into scientific mainstream reality.

The UC Berkeley Department of Astronomy believes in the importance of engaging with our local communities and is currently working to develop new programs to facilitate these efforts. We aim to invest in the next generation of Astronomers by: Creating informational tools and materials with the intent to aide in the understanding of Astronomy-related concepts and topics. Providing more interactive, face-to-face opportunities for those who otherwise would not have ready access to the various types of resources in our employ. Ultimately, our goal is to provide a launching pad for those who possess a curiosity in our field of study and to encourage the burgeoning interests of individuals of all ages.
