Abstract

Finding evidence of life elsewhere in the Solar System is dependent on understanding biotic processes that could occur within potentially habitable environments. Here, we describe a suite of high-pressure flow-through chambers that have been developed to investigate biotic and abiotic processes within simulated sub-surface martian and icy moon environments.
