Thank you Tascosa for hosting the New Mexico Museum of Space History Alien Autopsy.
Alien Autopsy teaches kids about astrobiology, and life on Earth, by role-playing as scientists studying creatures from the deep ocean of Europa, one of the ice-covered moons of Jupiter. We call it Fake Bodies, Real Science because we build anatomically correct bodies from non-meat products. Students work in teams of four as the dissect and try to figure out what the parts did and how the creature lived. In turn, they learn scientific investigation and about life on Earth.

While we haven’t found life on other worlds, not even Mars, we might one day. So this activity helps spark imaginations to think about how and where to look, and what life might be like. It’s one of many popular classes, like The Awful Truth About Zero-G and Paging Dr. Droid, that we can take across the state. We will choose a few kids to help with the dissection and talk about the search for life. It will be educational and fun.
