Astrobiology Magazine

Astrobiology Magazine (exploring the solar system and beyond), or Astrobiology Mag, is an American, formerly NASA-sponsored international online popular science magazine that contains popular science content, which refers to articles for the general reader on science and technology subjects.[1][2] The magazine reports on missions of NASA and other space agencies, as well as presents news of relevant research conducted by various institutions, universities, and non-profit groups. In addition, the magazine provides a forum through which researchers and the general public can oversee the progress made in fields of study that were associated with the science of astrobiology. According to, the magazine has a "vast archive of stories covering a broad array of topics ... [and] covers science and nature topics relevant to space, innovation and biology, with an emphasis on the existence, detection and exploration of life in the universe".[3] The magazine was created by Helen Matsos, who was the Chief Editor and Executive Producer. It began publication in 1999.[1]
