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.
