PS8.2/BG8.3 Organic molecules in the solar system and beyond (co-organized)
convener: Cyril Szopa,
co-conveners: Pascale Ehrenfreund, Harald Steininger, Zita Martins

The aim of this session is to give an overview of our current knowledge on the organic molecules in the solar system and beyond (exoplanets).
Recent observations done by space exploration probes (Rosetta, Curiosity, Cassini-Huygens…), telescopes, numerical and laboratory simulations and the analysis of extraterrestrial samples on Earth, enable us to investigate the nature of organic materials in space environments, their prebiotic relevance and their possible role in the emergence of life.

We invite contributions relevant to this topic, such as results on the distribution, nature and complexity of organic compounds in the solar system, evolutionary processes and transport of organic matter within planetary systems, bio-signatures and chirality of organic molecules present in extraterrestrial samples.

Abstract submission deadline is 6 January 2015, 13:00 CET, (i.e. lunchtime European time).
