Finding Mars in Morocco and what aliens would find of they ran into the Voyager probes

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 - From the deepest past to the present day, the deserts of Morocco provide a panorama of life’s history on Earth and give us insight for our investigations of Mars. See article.
g Life - Box jellyfish may seem like rather simple creatures, but in fact their visual system is anything but. They've got no fewer than 24 eyes of four different kinds. Now, researchers reporting online on April 28 in Current Biology, have evidence revealing that four of those eyes always peer up out of the water, regardless of the way the rest of the animal is oriented. What's more, it appears that those eyes allow the jellies to navigate their way around the mangrove swamps in which they live. See article.
g Intelligence - It's one thing to recognize your childhood home when you see it in a photograph and quite another to accurately describe or draw a picture of it based on your recollection of how it looked. A new report published online in Current Biology, offers some of the first clear evidence that monkeys, like humans, have the capacity for both forms of memory. See article.
g Message - The chances of aliens finding Voyager 1 and 2 in the emptiness of space are small. If they do, the two spacecraft could speak volumes about their planet of origin - Earth. See article.
