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 - Determining the number of red dwarfs with planets and assessing planetary
habitability (a planet’s potential to develop and sustain life) is critically important because such
studies would indicate how common life is in the universe, researchers say. See article.
g Abodes - In this podcast, astrobiologist Rick Ulrich talks about mapping Mars and the methanogens that might live there.
g Learning - Have a question about life in the universe? "Ask an Astrobiologist" is a service to answer astrobiology questions from the public, both about the origin and evolution of life on Earth and looking forward to the search for life on other worlds.
