I'd be fine with that. I really like it!

I did! It turned out really well. We had to change the line thickness a bit and used dotted lines for the orbits. Here's a pix (upside down, since that's how it appears when I look at it).

Awesome! The SAGANet organizers all seemed cool with the idea, so I'll go ahead with it then. Once I get it, I'll send you a photo!

Hello Katarina! I've been told that you are the person who designed out new awesome SAGANet logo. I'd like to get this image tattooed. It's very awesome. Would that be okay with you?

Ja det var jag som pratade om problemen att definiera liv. :-) Hoppas att din kompis fann det intressant.

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


¿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…
