Sensing Habitability on a micron scale
In dynamic environments, such as freeze/thaw cycles of brines or salt water, conditions relating to habitability can change drastically in the micron scale. This is important in astrobiology, as microbes are organisms of interest at this scale. In order to understand these scales, and see habitability "through a microbe's eyes", novel sensing methods must be considered. This talk will discuss habitability in the solar system, how to sense it, and work on probing into sensing at the micron-scale.
