COSMIC BIOLOGY

How Life Could Evolve on Other Worlds

Louis Neal Irwin and Dirk Schulze-Makuch

COSMIC BIOLOGY: How Life Could Evolve on Other Worlds It is very unlikely that little green humanoids are living on Mars. But what are the possible life forms that might exist in our Solar System and how might they have evolved?

This uniquely authoritative and imaginative book on the possibilities for alien life addresses the intrinsic interest that we have about life on other worlds - reinforcing some of our assumptions and reshaping others. It introduces new possibilities that will enlarge our understanding of the issue overall, in particular the enormous range of environments and planetary conditions within which life might evolve.
