8.1.12 Moon Trumps again

Have another go at Moon Trumps. This time, see if you can win on the hardest difficulty setting.

Of the five attributes on the cards, the values of the first four are (almost always) well established. However, in deciding what values to put on ‘potential for life’ we had to make our best guess. As we discover more, the future may prove us wrong, in both the absolute values and in the relative placings of each moon.

Do you think we’ve got it about right?

Have a go at our Moon Trumps [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] game online or pick up your own pack of Moon Trump cards to play in places the internet can't reach.

Next, before the end-of-course test, you will learn more about ways in which life could exist on and in moons.
