"The scientists and engineers who work on the Mars exploration program should read this book, especially on the ethical questions regarding the terraforming of the planet Mars. This book is also an interesting read for the general public, who are mildly interested in the origin of life and in search for extraterrestrial life, or even for people who have been searching for God in their personal endeavors." The Leading Edge
"...this volume is the product of a largely unprecedented and laudable collaboration between scientific and philosophical disciplines in approaching the growing field of astrobiology. Regardless of the readers' specialisation, this is an important 'turn-to' book for academic discussion on the inevitable philosophical, ethical and religious questions surrounding the search for life in the universe." - Leila Battison, Astrobiological Society of Britain
Where did we come from? Are we alone? Where are we going? These are the questions that define the field of astrobiology.
