The discovery of thousands of widely diverse planetary systems orbiting nearby stars raises challenging questions about life in the Universe.

What regions of the Milky Way galaxy are most habitable for complex life? How susceptible is surface dwelling life to lethal radiation from astrophysical sources?

Habitability in a Galactic Environment focuses on research to quantify and understand the Galactic Habitable Zone.
