Right now, the SAGANet team is working hard to bring you a brand new version of the site! On our new platform, it will be much easier to ask your questions and get answers, interact with astrobiology Experts, and participate in our live show.

In the meantime, we have set up this temporary discussion forum where you can post your questions. We will do our best to move them over to the new site when we launch, so feel free to discuss anything astrobiology right here!

I just finished watching the latest live broadcast with Kevin Hand. Fascinating discussion about alien oceans.

I was curious if a liquid ocean is sitting under the surface of Europa, is it possible that a planet with a dense atmosphere like Titan could also have temperatures high enough for liquid water to exist on the surface, not necessarily in our solar system, but around exoplanets? 

We have two moons with liquid water outside of the traditional 'Goldilocks Zone' which seems like it would greatly expand the possibility of there being life in the Galaxy. 

I am looking for a list of contests for middle school students, on topics of astrobiology, cognitive astrobiology and AI in space. 

Thank you,

I am looking for project opportunities related to astronomy/astrobiology. I am a 2nd year undergraduate student with keen interest in the same.
  • hello there, Chirag Parmar this side!

    i am a biotechnology student and currently on research of plants on other planets! The main issue is the gravity of the planet! If we take mars as an example, the gravity present there is one third of earth! Even humans can’t walk on the surface! Plants do react with the gravity! It is their most reliable signal! So what can be the probability of plants on mars?

Hello!

I am a high school student graduating this year and I wish to take up exoplanet study, research of biosignatures and habitability. I am also interested in the study of origin and evolution of life and visualizing alternate chemistries for life. I am currently unsure of what bachelor programs to look for in order to pursue my aforementioned interests and would be grateful for some advice on the programs I should consider and on the universities that offer them.

Thank you,

Pritha Jaipal

I'm sorry I meant courses where I've mentioned programs. Still in the learning process and new to the terminologies:)

I think so Edinburgh university has a course on astrobiology. You can check that out. And try astriology courses on Coursera also!!

Where to answer the question which was asked in ask an astrobiologist episode: 35??

Using tried and tested methods of constructing habitats from ethnobotanical and ethnozoological useful species for self sustainability on Mars

Posted by Andrew Planet on June 26, 2020 at 8:00am 0 Comments

To maximize crop yields on Mars it would be advantageous to do away with annuals and biannuals by engineering the latter into perennials as standard. Not only would that entail far less work to grow produce as the act of replanting is made obsolete, but per given cultivated area perennials bring forth more food and materials with less demand from the soil than the equivalent of annuals.

Imagine a superfood annual such as lentils engineered into a lentil tree for which there already…

This paper greatly extends the possibility of what a Goldilocks zone can be.  Its no longer the Goldilocks zone as a single expanse, its the Goldilocks zones for a particular area
