Russian Astrobiology Center (RAC)

St. Petersburg - Russian Federation

The Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute of the Russian Academy of Science (RAS), the Cytology Institute of the Russian Academy of Science, and the St. Petersburg Polytechnical State University (SPSU) form the core of the Russian Astrobiology Center (RAC). The RAC is administered from the Cosmic Research Department of St. Petersburg Polytechnical State University. The purpose of the RAC is to provide a single organization through which all of the astrobiology research, teaching and outreach in St. Petersburg can be coordinated.

The main scientific projects of the RAC are:
1) Factors affecting the migration of life through the Solar System and beyond
2) The interaction of the Solar System with high-density interstellar clouds
3) Research into the geochemical records of the late accretion events, and their possible correlation with biogenic activity in ancient rocks
4) Cooperative research between the Biosciences and the Geosciences on the spatial and temporal limits of the deep cold biosphere on and beyond the Earth, and as it relates to our understanding of habitability throughout our Solar System
5) Study of the earliest stages of pre-biotic chemical evolution, and the formation of organic material on the surface of small Solar System bodies.
