What is the goal of Exploration and Origins (at Georgia Tech)?
- To bring together people interested in Exploring the cosmos and understanding the Origins of life
- To provide a space for the discussion of planetary science, origins of life chemistry and biology, and space exploration technology
- To bring together researchers from across the Georgia Tech to explore new avenues of collaboration
- To serve as a networking resource early career scientists to meet and learn from researchers outside their area of expertise
- To function as a resource for students to communicate and help direct the shared goals of the Georgia Tech Astrobiology community
The Explorigins Group is an interest and discussion group to bring together young researchers with a needfully diverse set of backgrounds to discuss and explore all variety of recent topics pertaining to the Origins and Evolution of Life, the Exploration of our Solar System, and the Search for Habitable Planets Beyond Earth.
