Arguing for Gliese 581g and that large radio telescope in ‘Contact’

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 - Recent data for gas rich galaxies precisely match predictions of a modified theory of gravity known as MOND, according to a new analysis. This - the latest of several successful MOND predictions - raises new questions about accuracy of the reigning cosmological model of the universe. See article.
g Abodes - Even as some astronomers start shoveling dirt on the much-heralded "first potentially habitable" alien world – a planet called Gliese 581g – its co-discoverer is vigorously defending the find. See article.
g Life - New research sheds light on how fleas jump, reaching speeds as fast as 1.9 meters per second. See article.
g Message - Here’s a neat Web site about Arecibo Observatory , the large radio telescope located in Puerto Rico that was featured in the film "Contact”.
g Cosmicus - As it awaits congressional action on its 2011 budget, NASA is proceeding with plans to award roughly $200 million to companies developing technologies in support of the agency’s commercial space transportation goals. See article.
