For the past few decades, astronomers have studied many of the planets in our solar system and have examined large star forming regions in our galaxy.  Also, many molecules have been discovered in space which have implications for life and in recent years many extra-solar planets have been detected now running into the thousands.  As a result of these many discoveries and the search for conditions that would promote life on other planets, many web sites have gone online because of the growing interest in this subject.  Below are some of the web sites of major observatories that are engaged in increasing our knowledge of the universe.
