The search for life on Mars has gotten a lot of press over the past few years with probes and remote control explorers roaming the red planet for signs and clues. But research is also done on meteorites that were found in one of the most barren environments on OUR planet.
Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, our Astrobiology series continues with the search for and study of microbial life on Mars, that may have hitched a ride to Earth.
We'll also spend an academic minute with some Earth bound microbes that are a little gassy.
OK, so how’s this new year been treating you so far? Here at TBOOK central when we get into the first few cold days of January our thoughts almost always drift off to…SUMMER CAMP! But instead of sack races and soggy sheets, this camp involved lofty goals and big ideas.
Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, our Astrobiology series goes to camp…the sixth annual Exxon-Mobile Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp.
We'll also spend an academic minute keeping our eyes peeled for a stray super nova or two.
