Welcome to Space exploration, Astrobioethics and Planetary protection group. This group is devoted to discuss in all these expects.
Space exploration is the ongoing discovery and exploration of celestial structures in outer space by means of continuously evolving and growing space technology. Exploration of planets including Mars and Moon in particular is their study as potential future habitable worlds. One of the prime reasons for exploration of Moon and planets like Mars is the mapping of extraterrestrial worlds for minerals.
Astrobioethics is the subsection within astrobiology that is accountable for studying the moral implications of, for example, bringing humans to Mars, the Planetary Protection Policy, the social responsibility of the astrobiologist to society, etc.
Planetary protection is a guiding principle in the design of an interplanetary mission, aiming to prevent biological contamination of both the target celestial body and the Earth in the case of sample-return missions. Planetary protection reflects both the unknown nature of the space environment and the desire of the scientific community to preserve the pristine nature of celestial bodies.
