g Abodes - Astrobiology Magazine's climate blog, the Hot Zone, discusses the ways in which life can impact the physical conditions of the Earth. A recent study shows that the health of a single microbial species in the Earth's oceans could eventually alter the ocean food chain - and possibly the Earth's biosphere as a whole. See article.
g Message - Why does SETI use technology other than radio to listen for alien signals? See article.
g Cosmicus - Researchers have developed a way to use body parts as touchpads for small electronic devices.
