Radio Astrobiology: The Chemistry of Carbon

Radio Astrobiology: The Chemistry of Carbon

Join us for Astrobiology Magazine’s latest podcast: “Naked Astrobiology” with our host Simon Mitton. In this interview with Pascale Ehrenfreund of Leiden University in the Netherlands, she describes her studies of meteorites, comets, and the organic chemistry of space. By learning about the evolution of solar systems and tracking the molecules that are necessary for life, scientists such as Ehrenfreund hope to learn more about the origin of life on our own planet and the possibility for life on other worlds.
