What If everybody is listening and nobody is transmitting and support for Obama’s space vision

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Stars - A striking galaxy buzzing with energetic star formation takes center stage in a new photograph that showcases an unusual "superwind" of out-flowing gas, researchers say. See article.
g Abodes - Researchers are discovering new ways in which the Earth's oceans have influenced global climate. At the end of the last ice age, north Atlantic ice sheets melted, added fresh water and caused the collapse of the Atlantic Ocean conveyor belt. That should have plunged the northern Hemisphere into a deep freeze... but it didn't. See article.
g Message - Whenever the director of SETI research presents a public lecture, she can almost guarantee that “What If everybody is listening and nobody is transmitting?” will be one of the questions the audience asks. See article.
g Cosmicus - President Obama's proposals to change the focus of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has won the support of 14 Nobel laureates, as well as several former American astronauts and senior NASA officials who have signed their names to an open letter addressed to House Committee on Science and Technology Bart Gordon. See article.
g Aftermath - Would dutiful American citizens trust the government to handle first contact with extraterrestrials and rush to get information to the public? See article. This article is from 1999.
