Astrobiology Magazine (exploring the solar system and beyond), or Astrobiology Mag, was an American NASA-sponsored international online popular science magazine that contained popular science content, which refers to articles for the general reader on science and technology subjects. The magazine reported on missions of NASA and other space agencies, as well as presented news of relevant research conducted by various institutions, universities, and non-profit groups. In addition, the magazine provided a forum through which researchers and the general public could oversee the progress made in fields of study that were associated with the science of astrobiology. According to Phys.org, the magazine has a "vast archive of stories covering a broad array of topics ... [and] covers science and nature topics relevant to space, innovation and biology, with an emphasis on the existence, detection and exploration of life in the universe". The magazine was created by Helen Matsos, who was the Chief Editor and Executive Producer. It began publication in 1999 and ceased publication in February 2019.
