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 - Recently, Astrobiology Magazine's climate blog, The Hot Zone, spoke with Anastasia Romanou, associate research scientist at NASA GISS, about the need for precise local measurements of climate phenomena. Local measurements can provide information about the real impacts of climate change. See article.
g Message - Looking for a club to join? Try The SETI League. The league’s site has a lot of great information for everyone from the beginner to accomplished technogeek.
g Cosmicus - Two scientists, writing exclusively for Physics World, present their arguments for and against manned or robotic space missions.
g Aftermath - With humanity now on the verge of being capable to leave its home world, Earth, scientists have begun to wrestle with the consequences of this next great journey; of the social impact humanity will have upon discovering life elsewhere, be it fossil, bacterial or an intelligent civilization. See article. Note: This article is from 1999.
