  • Discuss: How do scientists view the sun? As unique or common? Why?

After the video:

  • Activity: Research 1 or 2 recently discovered extra-solar planets. How do characteristics about the planet’s sun influence the possibility of life being found on that planet?
  • Recommended Resource: “Rare Sun” (RTB article)
