Track A: Mars Exploration 11:00 AM - 12:00 Noon

Life on other planets would likely be brief and become extinct very quickly, said astrobiologists from the Australian National University (ANU). In research aiming to understand how life might develop, scientists realized new life would commonly die out due to runaway heating or cooling on their fledgling planets. “The universe is probably filled with habitable planets, so many scientists think it should be teeming with aliens,” said Aditya Chopra from ANU. “Early life is fragile, so we believe it rarely evolves quickly enough to survive.” “Most early planetary environments are unstable. To produce a habitable planet, life forms need to regulate greenhouse gases such as water and carbon dioxide to keep surface temperatures stable.” About four billion years ago, Earth, Venus, and Mars may have all been habitable. However, a billion years or so after formation, Venus turned into a hothouse and Mars froze into an icebox.
