Astrobio EPO Lessons Learned

Let's level with each other: EPO is fun, but can be mother-flippin' hard in practice! What gems of advice can you pass on to others? Make the most of both your successes and your crash-and-burn astrobiology EPO experiences alike. Share them here, and don't spare the whip (on yourself of course, this is a family-friendly establishment after all) because we all tend to make the same types of mistakes.

His words do not specifically address astrobiology EPO, but they do apply to it and transcend it cohesively in many ways. I will reproduce them here for inspiration.From “Mankind’s Ecological…Continue

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…

¿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…
