Shuttle program’s last days and why we should be able to talk with ET

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Cosmicus - Today the 30-year-old shuttle program is in the midst of another terminal event that is neither sudden, shocking, nor being replayed relentlessly on national television. But this time there will be no rebounding. The space shuttle is scheduled to go away for good - next year. See article. For related article, see “NASA Prepares Atlantis Shuttle For $2 Million Transportation”.
g Learning - Here’s the ultimate Web site for an introduction to astrobiology. “Astrobiology: The Living Universe” is a comprehensive and educational guide to life on Earth and beyond. This site features sections on the chemical origin of life, evolution, planetary biology, the search for extraterrestrial life, supporting humans in space and exobiology. See article.
g Aftermath - When we first meet extraterrestrials, will we and they be able to converse? An MIT professor argues that we will — provided they are motivated to cooperate — because we'll both think similar ways. See article. Note: This article is from 1985.
