Education and Outreach
Education and Outreach at the Foundation
A major part of our mission is to communicate science and technology to the public. Accordingly, FfAME has participated in multiple outreach activities. This includes creating, under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences, a report summarizing the limits of organic life in planetary systems. To explain the scientific method, Steven Benner, President of FfAME, authored a book entitled Life, the Universe and the Scientific Method. Along with outside contributors, members of FfAME maintain a blog where cutting-edge research and opinions are shared (www.primordialscoop.org).
The book Life, the Universe, and the Scientific Method considers how scientists go about addressing questions that are not easily addressed by hypothesis-based research.
