Galaxies evolved earlier than thought and Martians bearing diseases

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 - The first galaxies may have formed much earlier than thought, a new study suggests — just 200 million years or so after the universe's birth. See article.
g Abodes - Astronomers have a new way of identifying close, faint stars. The technique should help in the hunt for extrasolar worlds because these hard-to-see stars could be home to the easiest-to-see planets. See article.
g Life - Birds are known more for their senses of vision and hearing than smell, but new research suggests that millions of years ago, the winged critters also boasted a better sense for scents. See article.
g Aftermath - Could Martian research samples carry diseases? See article. This article is from 2004.
