Examining Ceres for alien life and the latest on our search of Mars

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Stars - When stars are more massive than about 8 times the Sun, they end their lives in a spectacular explosion called a supernova. The outer layers of the star are hurtled out into space at thousands of miles an hour, leaving a debris field of gas and dust with the potential of turning into habitable worlds. See article.
g Abodes - Plans are being drawn up for a low-cost mission to land on the dwarf planet Ceres. Known as the Ceres Polar Lander, it would examine polar regions and search for alien organisms. See article.
g Cosmicus - NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit has had some recent troubles, but is continuing its mission to explore the surface of Mars. While the rover moves toward new scientific targets, members of the mission team are trying to determine why the rover recently rebooted its computer. See article.
