  • Biomolecules Without a Planet?
    Molecules are typically looked at through a microscope but their spectra are also of intense interest to those manning the world's largest fully-steerable radio telescope. Seeing the fingerprint of an eight-atom molecule from twenty-six thousand light-years is not about optics as much as about speculating

  • Atom: Conversation with Lawrence Krauss
    A single oxygen atom's odyssey from the big bang to life on earth is the centerpiece of physicist Lawrence Krauss' book, Atom. The epoch-spanning journey follows starlight itself towards complex biology: what it is, where it came from, and where it's going.

  • Interview with Brother Guy Consolmagno
    At the 2004 Astrobiology Science Conference, Vatican astronomer Dr. Guy Consolmagno discussed his research as curator of one of the world's largest meteorite collections.

  • Three Tough Questions
    When does asking the right questions tell more than necessarily knowing the right answers? Perhaps when crossing the fertile boundary between biology and astronomy.

  • Dating A Star
    Sifting through the fossil records of nearly 100,000 galaxies may seem more like paleontology than astronomy. Some early conclusions from such a stellar expedition have revealed a five billion year peak in star formation and more massive galaxies forming stars earliest.

  • Looking towards Creation
    To astronomers looking back to what is called a Redshift 12 distance implies seeing light from the first half billion years of the universe. The resulting view can be compared to time-travel, since it gives a glimpse of galaxies as they once appeared soon after

  • View to the Edge of No-Return
    Ever imagine making a telescope that was fifty light-years long, and could see into the mouth of the most dense objects known, a black-hole. Astrobiology Magazine talks to astronomer Hayley Bignall about what it takes to see into the center of an active galaxy.

  • Seeing the Edge of the Universe
    Light reaching the Hubble Space Telescope from 13 billion light-years gives cosmologists a glimpse back in time, to when the universe was less than a billion years old or five percent of its current age.

  • Galactic Mergers and Acquisitions
    Coincident with announced de-orbiting of Hubble Space Telescope in 2007, a team of astronomers have created the largest color Hubble image yet, showing 80 diverse galaxies and helping visualize how large galaxies like our own Milky Way have evolved among menagerie of different types, sizes

  • The Antennae Crash
    As two massive galaxies collided and NASA's X-ray telescope looked on, a precursor of what may spawn new elements for habitable planets may be taking place in a cycle of creation and destruction.
