Welcome to our science challenge. – Let me introduce you to Gaia.
Gaia is the name that is given by some scientists to the ‘Living Earth’.
What – did I hear you suggest that the Earth, our planet, is a living thing?
Some scientists believe that it is a living thing and they call it the Gaia hypothesis. (In science a hypothesis is an idea that has not been proven.)
The Gaia Hypothesis was developed by James Lovelock. Check out James Lovelock’s background here!
Believe or not believe, let me tell you some stories linked to the Gaia Hypothesis? You can then tell me what you believe, or not believe, and let me know the reasons for your answer by making a comment.
