Thanks Kaleb! We'll certainly chat about the habitability of the Martian surface. Perchlorates are such strong oxidizers (like hydrogen peroxide) that biology would be severely stressed. Great question! Remind me during the event if somehow we don't address it.

I was wondering if she could weigh in on the recent Centre for Astrobiology research from Edinburgh, where they found that salt compounds in the martian soil contain large amounts of UV radiation to kill perchlorates in the soils, thereby making it much more difficult to grow bacteria on the Red Planet?

¿Are the Venusian sulphuric acid clouds the by product of long dead anoxogenic photosynthetic organisms?

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…

100 years tomorrow 26th April 2020 since we looked beyond the Milky Way Galaxy

Exactly 100 years ago tomorrow, the subject on whether this Universe is larger than the Milky Way Galaxy was brought up publicly at an event sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, known as The Great Debate. Until then the Milky Way was thought to be this Universe.  Conference at the NAS http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/events/annual-meeting/nas157/
