Harboring beastly stars in process of forming, possibility for life elsewhere in solar system and how space colonization will be possible

Welcome! “Alien Life” tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. You may notice that this and future entries are shorter than usual; Career, family and book deal commitments have forced me to cut back some of my projects. Now, here’s today’s news:
g Stars - An infrared image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows what astronomers are referring to as a "snake" and its surrounding stormy environment. The sinuous object is actually the core of a thick, sooty cloud large enough to swallow dozens of solar systems. In fact, astronomers say the "snake's belly" may be harboring beastly stars in the process of forming. See article.
g Abodes - David Grinspoon investigates a mystery at the bottom of the Earth, and explains what it might mean for the possibility for life elsewhere in the solar system. See article.
g Cosmicus - How will space colonization be possible? See primer.
