BACK TO 1i: PRESENTING THE FINDINGS
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q: Did you
learn anything new?
The team agreed
they had. The expedition opened their eyes as to where life could
be found. They now agreed that it would be a mistake to assume that
any environment was without life without testing.
Do you think research on life in extreme environments is worth doing?
If so, why?
The team all thought
such research is very worthwhile, because it could help us understand
how to find life on other planets, as well as understand how life
began on this planet. Extreme life also helps us to understand what
life is to begin with.
Q: Is this
a good way to learn?
The team unanimously
favored the expedition over book or classroom learning. They enjoyed
finding and evaluating the information themselves. It focused them.
Q: Are you
curious to continue the research?
Not about the
organisms in hot pots, no.
They feel they can move on from that!
