From the study of life in extreme environments to the development of experiments and science for the exploration of space, UKCA is involved in a wide variety of research.
Life in Extremes
We conduct research into life in extreme environments and its application to astrobiology.
Members of the UKCA are involved with or lead a number of space missions. Current projects include:
The UKCA operates a deep subsurface astrobiology laboratory
We conduct research in a number of analogue environments.
Are exoplanets habitable and do they have life?
Astrobiology and Philosophy
We have an interest in linking astrobiology to major questions that intersect with philosophy or sociology
