Event Description

The summer school "Water, Ice and the Origin of Life in the Universe", which will be held in Iceland from 1 to 13 July 2015, aims to give participants a thorough high-level introduction into the role of water in the evolution of life in the cosmos, starting from formation of water molecules in space and ending with evolution of the first organisms. It will bring together students and researchers from a multitude of different science branches, making it a truly multidisciplinary event. Field studies on the colonisation of lava fields and glaciers will complement the lectures. The programme of the summer school comprises:

  • lectures by internationally leading scientists covering a broad range of subjects in astrobiology
  • investigation of colonisation of volcanic rocks and glaciers with in situ life detection techniques
  • excursions to geologically and biologically interesting sites (lava caves, new lava fields)
  • surveys of Mars-analogue landscapes
  • 2 poster sessions for students and early career scientists


A multitude of highly merited researchers have agreed to teach at the course (see the Programme page for details. The deadline for application is 15 March 2015 23:59:00 UTC. For details please check the website

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…

100 years tomorrow 26th April 2020 since we looked beyond the Milky Way Galaxy

Exactly 100 years ago tomorrow, the subject on whether this Universe is larger than the Milky Way Galaxy was brought up publicly at an event sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, known as The Great Debate. Until then the Milky Way was thought to be this Universe.  Conference at the NAS http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/events/annual-meeting/nas157/
