Big Picture Science – Seth’s Tool Shed

by Gary Niederhoff on September 5, 2011









Anyone who does gardening knows that life is tough. It’s also ancient – the first living things appeared on this planet nearly as soon as our world was habitable. We consider life on real worlds – like Earth and Mars – as well as fictional ones, such as the desert planet from the movie “Dune”. We’ll hear about a new scheme to find Martians, and practical approaches to coping with climate change.

And is Pluto seeking revenge? The unmasking of a fourth moon around this former planet!

We’re making some lively discoveries in Seth’s Tool Shed on Big Picture Science.

Listen to individual segments here:
Part 1: Climate Change
Part 2: Life on Desert Planets
Part 3: Life’s Common Ancestor
Part 4: Search for Extraterrestrial Genomes
Part 5: Pluto’s New Moon
