Interactions between Saturn's satellites and utilizing resources from the Moon's regolith

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 - With data from Cassini, scientists are beginning to understand the interactions between Saturn's many dynamic moons. The environment of Saturn's moons is important in determining whether or not some of them could be abodes for life, and how transport of material between the moons affects the development of important organic molecules. See article.
g Cosmicus - NASA has demonstrated new robotic technology that will aid in lunar exploration. The technology will help astronauts utilize resources from the Moon's regolith, and will sustain habitats for scientists living and working on the Moon. See article.
