SING TO US, PLANETS

Ah, those heavenly bodies, storied in song…. One wonders what they think of our poking around them these days. Today we take a look at Mars, comets, our moon through the music of Columbus, OH singer Teresa Schleifer. And the science of physicist Robert Novak, CFC, Ph.D. of Iona College, who is part of an astrobiology team looking at the atmospheres of these close-by celestial bodies. Today, Mars’s atmosphere is too thin for liquid water to exist, but at one time, probably 2 billion years ago, it was much thicker and oceans existed. Did life exist on Mars back then? If so, what happened to it? Did it go underground? Or, perhaps, it left and ended up on Earth. Because the audience for songs is better on Earth.
