        Is There Life in Space?

        The High-Adventure Science Space Module contains five activities. In this module, you will explore the question, “Is there life in space?”

        In this module, you will discover how scientists find planets and other astronomical bodies through the wobble (also known as Doppler spectroscopy or radial-velocity) and transit methods. Then you will compare zones of habitability around different star types, discovering the zone of liquid water possibility around each star type. Finally, you will explore how scientists use spectroscopy to learn about atmospheres on distant planets. You will not be able to answer the question at the end of the module, but you will be able to explain how scientists find distant planets and moons and how they determine whether those astronomical bodies could be habitable
