Comparative Planetary Evolution

The Caltech Center for Comparative Planetary Evolution (3CPE) brings together perspectives and methodologies from astronomy, geology, and biology to explore how planetary systems and their biospheres form and evolve. Your investment will promote innovative collaborations and support researchers as they investigate the origins of life on Earth, explore habitable environments on Mars, simulate and map Jupiter’s icy moons, and build cutting-edge instruments to search for and explore habitable planets beyond the solar system.
