‘Eco Astronomy Sri Lanka’ – South Asian Astrobiology & Earth Science Research Unit was established in 2016 as a newly developed research area in Sri Lanka. We are one of leading research institute which conduct academic level courses and many research activities based on “Eco Astronomy”.
Eco Astronomy which describes as study the extreme environmental conditions effecting to Harbor Life . The life origin, evolution existence of life in the universe related to harbor life concept, means safe place providing refuge ,comfort and sustainable environment to any object. Eco Astronomical research has implemented focusing “Comparative systematic analysis of extreme environmental conditions of planet earth which relavent to extraterrestrial life. Our Research analysis dominantly based on Paleontological & Petrological factors”. Therefore this disciplines representing as a kin subject to interpreting comparative model for any Harbor Life .
When scientists approach the question of how life began on Earth, or elsewhere, their efforts generally involve attempts to understand how non-biological molecules bonded, became increasingly complex, and eventually reached the point where they could replicate or could use sources of energy to make things happen. Ultimately, of course, life needed both. Researchers have been working for some time to understand this very long and winding process, and some have sought to make synthetic life out of selected components and energy. Some startling progress has been made in both of these endeavors, but many unexplained mysteries remain at the heart of the processes. And nobody is expecting the origin of life on Earth (or elsewhere) to be fully understood anytime soon. To further complicate the picture, the history of early Earth is one of extreme heat caused by meteorite bombardment and, most importantly, the enormous impact some 4.5 billion years of the Mars-sized planet that became our moon. As a result, many early Earth researchers think the planet was uninhabitable until about 4 billion years ago. Yet some argue that signs of Earth life 3.8 billion years ago have been detected in the rock record, and lifeforms were certainly present 3.5 billion years ago. Considering the painfully slow pace of early evolution — the planet, after all, supported only single-cell life for several billion years before multicellular life emerged — some researchers are skeptical about the likelihood of DNA-based life evolving in the relatively short window between when Earth became cool enough to support life and the earliest evidence of actual life. So what else, from a scientific as opposed to a religious perspective, might have set into motion the process that made life out of non-life? A Concept like Eco Astronomy ? Study of extreme environmental conditions, effecting to the Harbor Life . ? One long considered yet generally quickly dismissed answer is getting new attention and a little more respect. It invokes panspermia, the sharing of life via meteorites from one planet to another, or delivery by comet. In this context, the question generally raised is whether Earth might have been seeded by early Martian life (if it existed). Mars, it is becoming increasingly accepted, was probably more habitable in its early period than Earth. But panspermia inherently could go the other way as well, or possibly even between solar systems.
Dr. Aravinda Ravibhanu was the first to set out a harbor life explained by a union of the general theory of Eco Astronomy mechanics & concepts. We contribute to enhance the knowledge about Eco astronomy by organizing programs and seminars to aware the Universities & Academic Research
