What would you say to ETI and life adapting to extreme conditions

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 - There are many ambiguities in forecasting climate change. New reports are attempting to get to the “nuts and bolts” of the problem, allowing people to clearly see the consequences of each degree of warming. Such information is important in understanding the future of life on Earth. See article.
g Life - Scientists studying deep-sea hydrothermal vents have found that larvae travel hundreds of miles to re-colonize these harsh locations after a volcanic eruption. The new study could challenge existing beliefs about how life adapts to extreme environments. See article.
g Cosmicus - News flash! Astronauts keep it professional in space! When veteran NASA spaceflier Alan Poindexter was asked during a visit to Tokyo what would happen if astronauts had sex in space, he emphasized that he and his colleagues were "a group of professionals." See article.
g Aftermath - If you could send a message to an extraterrestrial somewhere across the galaxy, what would you say? Read the submissions.
