'Astrobiology Rap', written by Jonathan Chase for the latest "Astrobiology Magazine European Edition (AMEE) -- the Nordic Invasion."

Jon is an early career researcher in science communication. Multi-talented, Jon has undergraduate degrees in both Aerospace Engineering, and Science and Science Fiction. As a post-graduate practitioner in communicating science, Jon is actively involved in a number of science communication activities. His main focus is on exploring new and alternative methods of engaging the public with science, and demonstrating the various ways that science impacts upon our knowledge of the world. Jon's approach is light-hearted, informative, and entertaining. It uses 'rap' in story form. Just as science fiction narrative comments on the world through a 'hard' or 'soft' science lens, rap comments on the world through a 'hard' or 'soft' emotional lens. Join us as Jon's alter ego, 'Oort Kuiper' riffs on the ideas of life in the universe!
