Studying exoplanets’ atmospheres and coming proof of life on Mars?

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 - Studying molecules in the atmospheres of exoplanets used to be a task reserved for powerful, space-based telescopes. Now, astronomers have used a small, ground-based telescope to identify atmospheric organic molecules on a distant planet. The finding means ground-based telescopes could be used in the hunt for habitable planets. See article.
g Life - NASA says advanced instruments will allow it to definitively prove whether three Martian meteorites contain evidence of life. 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 - Obama's proposed cancellation of Constellation moon program means more money for research into deep space travel, NASA chief says. See article.
