In the space of one year we have been to the Arctic and the Antarctic, using our life-detection instruments to measure the evidence of life that lives in rock. We've learned lots about how life operates in these environments, what evidence it leaves behind, and how our instruments perform in cold, dry environments. Forget those diet plans - try the extreme environment astrobiology plan and become both leaner and even more curious about life at both the top and the bottom of the world!
