Astrobiologists study the origins of all life forms—from a simple single-celled organism to the most complex multicellular organism like human beings. They study and research the evolution, distribution, and future of these life forms on the Earth and on other planets of the Solar System and beyond. This interdisciplinary area involves a thorough and integrated understanding of biological, planetary, and cosmic phenomena.

Interesting Facts about the career
Researchers have recently used thermal models and tectonic data to suggest that at least 100 kilometres of liquid water lie underneath the frozen surface of Pluto. The analysis also shows that the salt content of water is similar to that of the Dead Sea. The fact that water may exist on a planet so far from Earth may lead scientists to rethink the possibility of biological existence in different parts of the known universe.
