Obviously these are big questions, ones that have bothered humans for a very long time and continue to do so. We live at a particularly interesting time - science and technology have allowed us to construct a remarkable picture of not just the nature of life, but the fundamentals of how our universe works. It's certainly an incomplete picture, but it's pretty amazing nonetheless. We also stand poised to find out whether there are other planets at all like the Earth out there in our galaxy, and whether or not there are signs of life on some of them.
This blog is all about this science, the technology that enables it, the incredible discoveries being made, and also - importantly - the ideas and hypotheses that are produced. Life may indeed be unbounded, and we should be sure that our imaginations are too.
