Alien Bandstand and dinosaur galaxies

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 - Using Australian telescopes, Swinburne University astronomy student Andy Green has found 'living dinosaurs' in space: galaxies in today's universe that were thought to have existed only in the distant past. See article.
g Abodes - Evidence from a new investigation would appear to suggest that the Martian surface was once so frigid that it contained a primeval ocean, filled with glaciers and icebergs. See article.
g Life - A newly discovered species of dinosaur may show that dinosaurs spread throughout the world by taking advantage of a natural catastrophe that wiped out their competitors. The study provides an example of how extinction events have shaped the evolution of Earth's biosphere. See article.
g Intelligence - Women have to work harder than men in order to start sweating, while men are more effective sweaters during exercise, according to new research published in the journal Experimental Physiology. See article.
g Message - Here’s a neat interactive Web game where you analyze a signal from space, just as would a SETI astronomer See Alien Bandstand.
