The surface of Venus is a scary place--it's toxic, the air is crushing, and it's hot enough to melt lead. But Venus's atmosphere might be a different story. Scientists recently made an exciting discovery: possible signs of microscopic life in the clouds of Venus! In this one-time class, we'll take a close look at these findings and discuss what discovering life on Venus might mean for us here on Earth. First, we'll discuss what we know about the surface of Venus, and why it's highly unlikely...
Students will learn about the possibility that Venus might have microbial life in its upper atmosphere. They will learn about the clues scientists have discovered, as well as future planned observations.
I am a teacher, creative writer, and sci-fi fan who has always been fascinated by astronomy--so much so that I named my son Mars! I have ghostwritten children's books about the solar system, and keeping up with the latest scientific findings about our universe is a passion of mine that I can't wait to share.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
