Signaling Venus and Students for the Exploration and Development of Space

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 Abodes - Quote of the Day: “The countless worlds in the universe are no worse and no less inhabited than our Earth.” — Giordano Bruno
g Intelligence - Sleeping too much, or too little can increase the risk of mortality, British researchers found. See article.
g Message - An idea to send radar signal with Morse code to the Venus and to receive echo in order to test and to demonstrate the first Evpatoria Planetary Radar was suggested and implemented in 1962 by three scientists from Institute of Radio Engineering and Electronics in the former Soviet Union. While this transmission was not proper Interstellar Radio Message, it was its forerunner. See article. For related article, see “Report on Cosmic Call 1999”.
g Cosmicus - Students for the Exploration and Development of Space is an international student organization whose purpose is to promote space exploration and development through educational and engineering projects. See article.
