Life on Earth and in Space

  • Bernard Henin
Part of the Astronomers' Universe book series (ASTRONOM)


Although this book is devoted to subsurface oceans of our Solar System and the potential for life to arise in such environments, a detour to the arid plains of Mars is recommended, as unique experiments related to extraterrestrial life were performed there. The search for life on the Red Planet is a fascinating tale, and we do it no justice by covering it here in a few paragraphs since entire books have been written on this subject alone. Regardless, such a story provides a sense of perspective, as well as insights that will prove helpful as we speculate about the possibility of life within the subsurface oceans of our Solar System.
