- Students come to class filled with questions about life on other worlds. They have seen fantastic scenarios presented on television and in films; they have read and heard about exploring and the expansion of human presence in the solar system; they have followed the drama of space missions involving astronauts and robots. The answers to the questions that arise out of these experiences are often complex and multidimensional. How can teachers meaningfully address such questions?
