UK Centre for Astrobiology


The UK Centre for Astrobiology has a number of experimental facilities that are open for researchers to use.

Low Pressure Flow-Through Chamber

We have a simulation chamber that can be pumped down and chilled to simulate flow-through in Mars-like conditions.

High Pressure Flow-Through Chamber

We are currently in the process of building a system for microbiology experiments under high pressure.

Astrobiology Wet Lab Facilities

We have aerobic/anaerobic and other microbiology facilities available for use.

Microscopic cold environments simulation

Study of cold temperature processes at microscopic scales

Clinostat microgravity simulation

Microgravity simulation

Underground Astrobiology Lab

Deep subsurface astrobiology laboratory
