My article was the "Rosetta Probe Discovers Organic Molecules on Comet." It was really interesting because this could help the Scientist prove so many things.  This could be a major break through because if there can be life on a comet who knows where else there can be life.

The probe landed on the surface if a comet and has discovered organic molecules, the building blocks of life.  An instrument aboard the Philae lander derected the molecules in the comet's atmosphere .  A compound is one whose molecules contain the carbon atom, the basis of life on Earth.  Scientist are analyzing the data to see weather the organic compound detected by Philae are simple.  A drill on Philae also obtained some material from the comet's hard surface.  A study of the comet's organic materials "will help us to understand whether organic molecules were brought by comets to the early earth," which could have kick-started life here. Researchers had expected to fine some sort of molecule on the comet but not what they did find. "We are very confident that in coming months we will get more information."

I thought it was really cool and amzing that life can almost be anywhere.  That means life can be on plantes and other forms like that.  That means that we could one day live on different planets.

DONE!

  1. I like how you explain a lot about comets, science, etc. I personally have a great knowledge in space and its things

  2. Good job explaining this. You have cleared up some things that i thought that i wouldn't be able to comprehend. Great job!

  3. That is cool how the probe was able to discovered organic materials on the comet. I remember that comet's tail face away from the sun because of solar winds

  4. I also think it is pretty cool life can be found anywhere, like anywhere WOW! Its relating to the SC state standards by Talking about planets and comments.

  5. very interesting but i think that it will be a while before we have the technology to do this

    1. We did do this! We even watched a video about it in class!

  6. I think that this is a very interesting topic considering that I thought life couldn't be found anywhere but on earth for the longest of time. Now I'm starting to wonder. The way that this could relate to SC Standards is that when you think of how fast a comet is, it can go really fast, like light years fast. So the fact that the molecules could stay on the comet is amazing. If this comet has life molecules on it, then, like you mentioned earlier, there could be life on other planets as well.

  7. This topic reminds me of when we did the power point on a topic and we had Rosetta the space probe in our power point, and as you said its actually facinating how much there discovering now in outer space.

  8. This is a very interesting article! I don't think that there can be life on a comet because we know that they get very cold when they're in the part of their obit that's far out from the sun. Humans couldn't live on those conditions I don't think. However, it's really cool that scientists think this is possible!

  9. I think that you did a good job at describing what you read. I agree that it was a cool article. It would be cool to one day live on another planet.

  10. This is an awesome article. I thought that it was neat that they captured those sign of organic living growing creatures on there. That is a sign of life:)

  11. Wow, this showed me that there was more behind the fact that Rosetta was the first probe that was able to land on a comet. This is a good article that you had, though I wouldn't be sure that we would be able to live on other planets, just think of how long it would take just to get there, maybe light-years.

  12. Hi!!! I think this was super cool to her that one day we could possibly live on nother planet and its so cool how it relates to when we learned about what other planets are made of. And which ones like saturn that we cant live on.

  13. I think that it is really cool how we could actually find life on another planet. I think this is very well explained and I hope that scientist will further their study into this. It would be really cool if we could be able to live on another planet one day.

  14. This was really cool!! It was very interesting to read and to wonder if there is actual life on another planet. This can connect to our astronomy unit in class!
