Proposed planet hunting space observatory and ‘denser sampling’ of Earth’s geological record

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 - Geologists studying the environment of the early Earth face many difficulties in interpreting the data they gather. One scientist believes “denser sampling” and “more judicious reading of rock samples” may help the community solve some of the biggest questions about our planet's history. See article.
g Message - A news story from an Oakland television station that appeared on the internet in 2008 has falsely led some to believe that a credible radio signal from space may have been recently detected - a signal that might be ascribable to extraterrestrial intelligence.. See article. This article is from 2008.
g Cosmicus - A new European space observatory could join the hunt for life-bearing planets beyond our solar system if it is selected for full development next year. See article.
g Aftermath - If some day we detect a radio signal from a distant civilization, well have to make some adjustments in the way we view ourselves. After millennia knowing of no other intelligence in the universe than humankind, we could face a considerable challenge to our terrestrial egotism. See article. This article is from 2000.
