Kepler Mission examines stars and why haven’t we colonized Mars?

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 - NASA's Kepler Mission has detected changes in brightness in 500 sun-like stars, giving astronomers a much better idea about the nature and evolution of the stars. See article.
g Abodes - Micro-meteorites may have caused the climates of Earth and Mars to cool four billion years ago. These tiny meteorites could have bombarded the planets, making it difficult for life to survive during this early period in the Solar System.. See article.
g Life - Move over, newts and salamanders. The mouse may join you as the only animal that can re-grow their own severed limbs. Researchers are reporting that a simple chemical cocktail can coax mouse muscle fibers to become the kinds of cells found in the first stages of a regenerating limb. See article.
g Message - It's great to see the reputable National Geographic take the search for extraterrestrial life seriously. See article. This article is from 2004.
