Astrobiologists are thinking beyond just finding a near twin. This thought-provoking article would be well suited to all sciences from year 6 to 10 as well as Senior Sciences. It could provide a lots of talking points for students such as ‘why are we looking for life elsewhere?’ and ‘what could this mean for society in the future?’ as well as providing a clear interaction between all the sciences.
Interactive activity included.
