What is the origin of the building blocks of life? How do these biogenic compounds combine to create life? How does life affect the environment from which it arose and in turn how is it affected by it? Does life expand beyond Earth and how?
These questions all by no means new, but for once we might be poised to answer them. Astrobiology brings together scholars of various disciplines to answer these fundamental questions.
The University of Peradeniya renowned for its excellence in research embarks on yet another novel venture. The Astrobiology Centre will be the first of its kind in the country and will serve to streamline and provide a network of experts.
