NASA Astronomers searching the atmospheres of alien worlds for gases that might be produced by life can't rely on the detection of just one type, such as oxygen, ozone, or methane, because in some cases these gases can be produced non-biologically, according to extensive simulations by researchers in the NASA Astrobiology Institute’s Virtual Planetary Laboratory. The researchers carefully simulated the atmospheric chemistry of alien worlds devoid of life thousands of times over a...

Dr. Tony Phillips, Science@NASA High above Earth, more than 20 miles above sea level, a diaphanous layer of ozone surrounds our planet, absorbing energetic UV rays from the sun. It is, essentially, sunscreen for planet Earth. Without the ozone layer, we would be bathed in dangerous radiation on a daily basis, with side effects ranging from cataracts to cancer. People were understandably alarmed, then, in the 1980s when scientists noticed that manmade chemicals in the atmosphere were...
