Just read Ken's great summary of the conference
in Texas.  One of my mentors, Sheri Klug 
was lucky enough to attend the same con-
ference and told us about it at our Project
Search meeting last night.  When I got home
and dived into May's issue of the Smithsonian
Magazine, I was delighted to see an article
about Black Smokers and the "un-Earth" like
life one finds at the bottom of the ocean.
I recommend a look at this article to help
teachers and kids understand exactly what
scientist might consider life on another
planet.  Have a good read
