Why CAVES – Astrobiology


NASA’s director of Astrobiology Institue, Penelope Boston, explains why caves are interesting to astrobiologists.

Caves are little studied areas and can resemble environments found on other planets. Caves exist on the Moon and Mars and could be used by astronauts for shelter when we explore our Solar System

Recorded during a workshop on astrobiology and caves in Sardinia, Italy in 2015.

ESA’s CAVES course – Cooperative Adventure for Valuing and Exercising human behaviour and performance Skills – is a two-week course that prepares astronauts to work safely and effectively in multicultural teams in an environment where safety is critical – in caves.

  1. Muitas respostas podem estar dentro das cavernas!! A causa é o gatilho imediato, a motivação o processo racional subjacente (a intenção) de exploração…como podemos aprender nas cavernas milenares?? Podemos destacar as manualidades, lascar pedras o usar ambas as mãos, e os músculos dos braços para encontrar outras vidas e fazer os paralelismos…Houve lugar para a fotografia instantânea optimizada pelos algoritmos da máquina, uma forma eficaz de passar uma mensagem de captar o instante…Que belas fotos na crueza do local captaram a beleza e depois no final viram a luz do dia são e salvos!
