内容紹介

Informed by new planetary discoveries and the findings from recent robotic missions to Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, scientists are rapidly replacing centuries of speculation about potential extraterrestrial habitats with real knowledge about the possibility of life outside our own biosphere--if it exists, and where. This second edition of Kevin W. Plaxco and Michael Gross's widely acclaimed text incorporates the latest research in astrobiology to bring readers the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and engaging introduction to the field available.

Plaxco and Gross expand their examination of the origin of chemical elements, the developments that made the Universe habitable, and how life continues to be sustained. They discuss in great detail the formation of the first galaxies and stars, the diverse chemistry of the primordial planet, the origins of metabolism, the evolution of complex organisms, and the feedback regulation of Earth's climate. They also explore life in extreme habitats, potential extraterrestrial habitats, and the current status of the search for extraterrestrial life.

Weaving together the relevant threads of astronomy, geology, chemistry, biophysics, and microbiology, this broadly accessible introductory text captures the excitement, controversy, and progress of the dynamic young field of astrobiology. New to this edition is a glossary of terms and an epilogue recapping the key unanswered questions, making Astrobiology an ideal primer for students and, indeed, for anyone curious about life and the Universe.

5つ星のうち 5.0 used as supplement to Corsera (coursera.org) course 2013/2/22
投稿者 A. Johnson - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This book contained content parallel to the U of Edinburgh Coursera Astrobiology course taught by Charles Cockell, who suggested it as supplementary reading. It provides a little more in depth look at the subjects than a basic level Cousera course was able to cover. An earlier free text is available to download from Rice U, but it is the earlier (2007) edition. So much changes so quickly. The later version seems appropriate if if it comes at a price.

This introductory text is exciting reading, a page turner for those with even a mild interest in astrobiology. There is nothing in the content out of range for anyone willing to think a little about the material. No science or math degrees required. Yet, the text may very well send the unsuspecting reader in search of the next level of learning.

The Kindle price was reasonable.
5つ星のうち 3.0 Fascinating topic, but chemistry heavy 2013/3/14
投稿者 Liam H Dooley - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I read this for a course for beginners who do not have a science background. Amazing topic. But a third or more of the book is very heavily chemistry. It suggests that you can skip parts.. .but I am usually reluctant to skip a whole section of a book just in case I miss something interesting.

I know physics better than chemistry; but admittedly this subject is necessarily a chemistry heavy topic. However, I felt that there was a bit too much chemistry in it. Too many long explanations about bonds, molecules, etc.

Still, the first third and last third are great.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Maximum number of cows on Mars 2016/2/5
投稿者 Russell Williams - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
A fascinating look at the question of whether we are alone in the galaxy or even the universe, and all the things that had to go just right for us to be here reading about it. And where else are you going to find a calculation of the upper bound for the number of cows that could possibly exist on Mars?

As the title says, it's a brief introduction. It does dig into some topics - like physical chemistry explanations for carbon vs. silicon based life - at a chemistry 201 level, and overall provides a great overview of major topics. It's a good place to start if you are looking for an intro with references to more in-depth details.

Writing this review because Kevin Plaxco is the best, and you should read his book. He's kind of hilarious.
