Learning Goal: I’m working on a astrobiology question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Part I: Astrobiology DiscoveriesFor this assignment I want you to read about several discoveries in astrobiology and discuss which one you think is the most interesting/exciting. Use one of these sources:SpaceRef Astrobiology Web (Links to an external site.)
Phys.org Astrobiology News (Links to an external site.)
NASA Exoplanet Exploration News & Features (Links to an external site.)
Bad Astronomy (Phil Plait’s blog) (Links to an external site.) (be sure to pick a story that includes biology, not just an article on astronomy)
Astrobiology at NASA News & Discoveries (Links to an external site.)
Read several recent articles about the latest discoveries in astrobiology (must be published after 2022 Jan 1). Then choose your favorite, and in one paragraph summarize the article and state the key results. Explain why the article is important – why is this newsworthy? Try to answer the usual “Who, What, When, Where, Why?” set of questions. Then in a second paragraph, state what made the article interesting to you. Reserve your own thoughts/opinions for the second paragraph. Be sure to give the title, date, and URL of the article at the start of your answer. As usual, proper college-level English is required. The assignment length should be one page. (I don’t care about font size, spacing, etc – you know what looks good and what does not. Please try to keep this to 1 side of a piece of paper.) Since you are listing the title and date at the top of your homework, there is no need to have a separate reference or citations section. But be sure to include the published date, URL (web address), and the author of the article (if given).Part II: Multiple Choice Questions:Please answer these questions on a separate page from the Part I question. Just state your letter choice, do not write out the question or give an explanation. There are 12 questions for a total of 6 points.Chapter 4: #37, 38 . Chapter 5 # 31, 33, 35 . Chapter 6 #33, 34, 35, 36, 39 . Chapter 7 #25, 31Upload your homework to Canvas in .pdf format.Extra Credit (worth 1-3 points): The James Webb Space Telescope (Links to an external site.) was launched in December 2021 and is the successor to the famous Hubble Space Telescope. What makes this telescope special? How is it different than the Hubble Space Telescope? What are some of its key science goals? Keep this to 1 page or less. To earn full credit you *must* have several references – all scholarly work must include a bibliography and/or list of references. Include the URLs.Link for the textbookhttps://u1lib.org/book/5869408/ebf1d5

Learning Goal: I’m working on a astrobiology writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Explore the internet (or books or magazines) to find your favorite image related to astrobiology. Then:Write a short paragraph (3-4 sentences) stating the science content of the image. Specifically, explain (i) what the image is about, and (ii) how the image is connected to astrobiology (not just astronomy or biology). How is it related to what we’ve been learning in this course? If it is an astronomy image, like a Hubble Space Telescope image of a galaxy or nebula, make sure you explain the connection to life: How is the image related to the origin, evolution, or search for life? If it only related to astronomy and does not have a clear and direct connection with biology, then it will not earn full credit.Then in a second paragraph, very briefly explain why you chose the image (2-3 sentences is fine).Obviously, include the image in your assignment (put it at the start). Be sure to fully cite the source of the image (URL) and give proper credit to whoever created the image. Put this right at the top of your homework. Be sure to run a spelling checker on you document to make sure you don’t lose points for typos and dumb things like that.
