We have a Biology tag which is aliased to "Life" However, I am not sure this is appropriate for all the biological experiments done in space (the description of Life aka Biology is closest to Astrobiology).

Should we undo the Alias of Biology to Life and make it a standalone tag ? Life should however Alias to Astrobiology is'nt it ?

    $\begingroup$ The life tag has had broad usage since the beginning of the site--being used for both astrobiology and the lives of astronauts in space, for example. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage May 30 '17 at 13:47

I generally think of as the deliberate study of living things. It's a scientific field. refers more to the incidental presence of living things, such as potential extra-terrestrial organisms, or the contamination from one world to another.

I don't think too strongly on the issue, and I could be convinced of a better distinction.

should not be used when it means .

    $\begingroup$ Agree on the last sentence. I think in that case questions should simply be retagged. $\endgroup$ – called2voyage Sep 18 at 13:18
