Description: This is a draft report of the Life in Extreme Environments (LExEn) workshop held at the National Science Foundation. It proposes questions such as: What conditions determine the limits of life? What is the functional diversity of life? How does life evolve from pre-biotic conditions? With the purpose of determining an overall direction of LExEn for the future, it goes into detail about possible research topics, methods, and new technology. The site also offers a link to a more condensed executive summary.
