This resource explores possible microbial habitats in the solar system. It begins by narrating historical ideas about "alien life" and then examines extreme habitats on Earth. Using comparative planetology, it explores the environments of Mars, Europa, and Titan. Each page uses visuals to support the possibility of extraterrestrial microbial life.
