Astrobiology on habitable worlds: The case for considering prebiotic chemistry in mission design

Laboratory-based studies of prebiotic chemistry — processes by which potential chemical precursors to life are produced — have provided insights into processes by which life could have emerged on early Earth. In this white paper, we describe how these insights provide actionable information that can inform the design of space exploration missions.
