The 2021 session of the Astrobiology Introductory Course (the 14th edition of the school) was held online from June 21 to 25, 2021. This online version generated several hundred registrations from all countries, and nearly 230 participants have taken all of the courses.
All the lectures are now available to everyone on the Youtube channel of the French Astrobiology Society. These videos also join the online database of astrobiology course videos on the Astrobiovideo site.
If sanitary conditions allow it, the next school session will take place in person from March 13 to 19, 2022. All information relating to this new school will be available from the beginning of October on the RED website.
