Ultimately, we need to figure out what is next for humanity. Our logical move is to break free of the confines of the Earth and colonise another body in the Solar System, such as the Moon or Mars. How and when will we do this? Or is it all just science fiction? These questions, in a nutshell, make up the core of astrobiology-- the study of the origins and evolution and biology of life elsewhere in the universe, and the search for it. This book is an accessible introduction to this most fascinating of all the astro-sciences-- are we alone in the Universe?

Not as much fun as I had hoped. Since astrobiology is purely theoretical there should be lots of scope for imaginative science. Instead the author starts well with a rundown on life as we know it, but then trundles the reader round the Solar System a couple of times detailing possible habitats. The last section on human exploration of the Solar System does not really belong here.
