SEARCH is a new method to seek evidence of extinct life and potential habitats. SEARCH combines innovative spectroscopic integrated sensing and processing with a hyperspace data-analysis algorithm. Using UV, visible, and near-IR spectroscopic integrated sensing and processing, SEARCH is designed to explore and quantitatively assess a local region on the surface of a planet or moon as a potential habitat for life, past or present. In the course of collecting geological data, SEARCH spectrometry… CONTINUE READING
