ETI timing its precursor signal and inflatable module on ISS

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 - The object that plowed into Jupiter in 2009, creating a giant scar, was most likely an asteroid the size of the Titanic, rather than a comet, the latest evidence suggests. See article.
g Life - A paper just published in the journal Science reports that in some cases animal migrations could actually help reduce the spread and prevalence of disease and may even promote the evolution of less-virulent disease strains. See article.
g Intelligence - Orangutan DNA is more diverse than human's and remarkably stable through the ages, new research shows. See article.
g Message - Phoning home intergalactically may have one natural prerequisite if a civilization is hoping to connect: timing their precursor signal or “ring” so that we might know that they're broadcasting. Dr. Robin Corbet, of the Universities' Space Research Association, discusses his research findings on Synchronized SETI. Note: This article is from 2002.
g Cosmicus - The International Space Station could get a new inflatable module supplied by the private American company Bigelow Aerospace, sources say. See article.
