Analog Studies: What Can the Environment on Earth Tell Us About Other Planets?

Universities Space Reserach Association's Kennda Lynch is an astrobiologist working at the Lunar and Planetary Institute where she conducts analog studies—studies where a similar, more accessible environment is studied in place of a less accessible one. A sinkhole in Lake Huron for example, is being used to study what life and habitats could be like on other planets.
