Astrobiology is the study of life in space, combining aspects of astronomy, biology and geology. It is focused primarily on the study of the origin, distribution and evolution of life. It comes from the Greek words Î±ÏƒÏ„ÏÎ¿Î½ or astron = star, Î²Î¹Î¿Ï‚ or bios = life and Î»Î¿Î³Î¿Ï‚ or logos = word/science), and is also known as exobiology (Greek: ÎµÎ¾Ï‰ or exo = out) or xenobiology (Greek: Î¾ÎµÎ½Î¿Ï‚ or xenos = foreign).
