The EU is organising a consultation open to all entities and individuals on the future of European space policy |
The questionnaire can be accessed through:
These questionnaires are seriously analysed and might influence the strategy towards more exploration and science than presently.
Deadline: 12 July 2016.
will bring together experts on exoplanet research to present a comprehensive overview about exoplanet research and to discuss future developments.|
The Seminar will be held from November 28 to December 1, 2016, in the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, in the city of Bad Honnef, south of Bonn, Germany.
The target audience are young researchers working in the field of extrasolar planets at an early career stage, i.e., PhD students or postdoctoral researchers doing their first or second postdoc.
Deadline for application: September 25, 2016

The WE-Heraeus Foundation will inform applicants about their acceptance shortly after the deadline.
European Astrobiology Campus (EAC)
The EAC is an Erasmus+ Strategic partnership project to provide broad and comprehensive multidisciplinary education in astrobiology
through the provision of dedicated intensive courses for students from 12 partner universities and science education organizations.
EAC will also train lecturers drawn from all over Europe to provide broad and comprehensive multidisciplinary education in astrobiology
and deliver material publicizing astrobiology to wider public audiences.

Noack et al. (2016): Water-rich planets: How habitable is a water layer deeper than on Earth?
Icarus 2016, 277, 215-236; doi:10.1016/j.icarus.2016.05.009
Link to paper (open access until July 14, 2016)
Water is necessary for the origin and survival of life as we know it. In the search for life-friendly worlds, water-rich planets therefore are obvious candidates and have attracted increasing attention in recent years. The surface H2O layer on such planets (containing a liquid water ocean and possibly high-pressure ice below a specific depth) could potentially be hundreds of kilometres deep depending on the water content and the evolution of the proto-atmosphere.
We study possible constraints for the habitability of deep water layers and introduce a new habitability classification relevant for water-rich planets (from Mars-size to super-Earth-size planets). [...]
