Would ETI act in an alien manner and helping NASA explore Mars at your desktop

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Intelligence - It is wrong to think that if there are aliens out there, they necessarily have to act in an alien manner. See article.
g Message - George Dvorsky’s ongoing series on the Fermi Paradox, which appears on his Sentient Developments site, is drawn from a recent conference presentation about the implications of Fermi’s question. ‘Where are they?’ indeed, and what factors could explain our inability to find other sentient life forms? See article. Note: This article is from 2007.
g Learning - NASA and Microsoft have created the new “Be a Martian” Web site, which allows citizen scientists to participate in projects such as improving Martian maps and assisting Mars science teams. Now the public can help astrobiologists determine the past habitability of Mars. See article.
g Aftermath - A Penn State professor recently had the opportunity to visit the Vatican to participate in a conference one wouldn’t normally associate with the Catholic authority: a three-and-a-half-day discussion of extraterrestrial life. See article.
