Why stellar discs evolve differing shapes and what the Koran says about ETI

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 - Astrobiologists have long studied dusty disks around stars in order to better understand how planets form and evolve. One longstanding mystery is why these disks can have such a wide variety of unique and complicated shapes. Now, a new NASA study may have some answers. See article.
g Message - Regardless of what causes gamma-ray bursters, they could be the key to discovering life elsewhere in the universe. An astrophysicist says smart aliens might use the bursts to alert us to their messages. See article. Note: This article is from 1999.
g Cosmicus - A dust storm is causing problems for NASA's Mars Exploration Rover, Spirit. The mission team on Earth is now anxiously watching the weather reports from Mars. They hope that Spirit will soon be on the move, continuing its mission to search for signs that Mars was once habitable. See article.
g Aftermath - This very well could be the first book on the topic of ETIs and Islam: Sayeedur Rahman “Extraterrestrial Intelligence: Amazing New Insights from Qur'an in the Light of its Own True Nature.
