Hello everyone: This week, we are joined by Dr. Steven D'Hondt of the University of Rhode Island. He recently co-led a study reviving microorganisms that laid dormant under the ocean floor for over 100 million years. His work could re-write much of what we know about life.
Also in this episode of Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion, we take a look at the discovery of a world much like Saturn orbiting a nearby star, and we see how storms on Jupiter alter the atmosphere of the largest planet in our solar system. Finally, we talk about a unique study that used the Hubble Space Telescope to examine the atmosphere of Earth during a lunar eclipse, testing methods to find life on other worlds.
