Exploring Astronomy Though Microbial Fingerprints
A blog post by astronomy students Hunter, Jake, Justin, Heather, and Schelby
In our astronomy class, we took the time to research alien life or the possibility of it on other planets. We focused on Titan, one of the moons of Saturn. During this process, we wrote down some of the questions we had about the possibility of alien life in our solar system. Using social media, we found Dr. Sarah Rugheimer, an astrobiologist who graduated with her PhD from Harvard University. We sent her our questions and received an audio reply from her, which we used to make our podcasts.
