Extraterrestrial artifacts and aliens as a pop-culture phenomenon

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 Life - Extraterrestrial life is life originating outside of Earth. It is the subject of astrobiology, and its existence remains theoretical. There is no evidence of extraterrestrial life that has been widely accepted by the scientific community. See article.
g Message - When astronauts return to the Moon, they should keep their eyes peeled for extraterrestrial artifacts – pieces of technology from alien civilisations that have wound up on the lunar surface either by chance or design. See article.
g Imagining - From historical myths and legends to fanciful science-fiction tales of little green men and the uncertain possibility of life beyond our planet, Aliens have been a pop-culture phenomenon for centuries now, being portrayed as both harmless curious visitors to threatening monsters with aspirations to take over our planet. See article.
