From the Gulf of Mexico to the Moons of Jupiter

Students compare deep ocean conditions to those found on the moons of Jupiter. In this Earth science lesson, students consider the possibilities and conditions needed to support simple life. Students examine the habitats and life found near oceanic hot vents to determine if conditions on Jupiter's moons are life sustaining. Students will use evidence to write a paper stating if they believe life could or could not live on one of Jupiter's moons.
