I am a 77-year-old amateur scientist but my hobby has been possible Life on Mars and
the Origin of Life for 67 years. In 2014 I got to present at my first scientific
conference- the Gordon Origin of Life Conference- in Galveston, Texas. I collected
the meteorites and minerals associated with the Origin of Life and put them in a
portable display case. It was such a success that I have been able to update it for
new discoveries and present it again at:

The 8th International Mars Conference in 2014 in Pasadena, Ca
The 2nd Landing Site Conference for the Mars2020 Rover in 2015 in Monrovia, Ca
The Gordon Origin of Life Conference in 2016 in Galveston, Texas
The NASA Biosignature Conference in 2016 in Lake Tahoe, Nevada
The European Astrobiology Network Association Conference in 2016 in Athens, Greece

The latest iteration of he exhibit can be found at astrobiology.gr Scroll all the
way to the bottom.

I wanted to be an astronomer when I was young, but in college I didn't understand
calculus, so a science career was out of the question. I went into a business career
instead, and have been retired for fifteen years. I volunteer in Space Sciences
at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. I joined MEPAG (Mars Exploration Program
Analysis Group) of NASA and also the Mars Society. I joined the International Society
for the Study of the Origin of Life (ISSOL) and worked on the 2016 NASA Astrobiology
Roadmap. And now I have joined saganet.org.

Let me know if you have any new ideas for my exhibit.

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

Posted by Andrew Planet on May 4, 2020 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

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…

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/
