Deep-sea ecosystems and ‘The Science of Aliens’

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Abodes - A team of researchers at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute conducted the first field test earlier this year of a new configuration of Deep-ESP. The device is designed to perform long-term studies of how deep-sea ecosystems respond to environmental changes. See article.
g Cosmicus - When astronauts finally find out if there really are little green men on Mars they might just be traveling across the planet in a Canadian rover. See article. Note: This article is from 2007.
g Learning - A fossil controversy lollapalooza heads for the Big Apple later this month, exhibitors announced Monday. On display, Ida, the 47-million-year-old fossil primate made famous last month by publicity campaign, joins Lucy, the 3.2 million-year-old fossil early human found four decades ago, according the the Houston Museum of Natural Science. See article.
g Imagining - Think of your favorite alien on TV or in the movies. Do you have the image in mind? I'd bet that your alien is pretty darn smart. However, despite what we see in “Star Wars” and “Star Trek,” the author of “The Science of Aliens” doesn't expect intelligence to be an inevitable result of evolution on other worlds. See article.
