Contaminating Martian life and best places and ways to look for 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 Abodes – The oceans remain one of the least explored places on the planet, but new robotic technology could change that. Collecting accurate data concerning the oceans is essential in understanding how events resulting from climate change, such as glacial melt, will effect the future of our planet and biosphere. See article.
g Life – Bacteria common to spacecraft may be able to survive the harsh environs of Mars long enough to inadvertently contaminate Mars with terrestrial life according to research published in the April 2010 issue of the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology. See article.
g Message – Scientists haven't found E.T. just yet, but they may be pinning down the best places and ways to look for alien life during future space missions, NASA researchers said Wednesday. See article.
g Cosmicus – Physicists have pinpointed the location of a long lost light reflector left on the Moon by the Soviet Union nearly 40 years ago. The reflector could actually help today's scientists measure physical properties of the Moon and phenomena such as tidal distortion. See article.
