Evolutionary mechanisms of bacteria and potential habitability of Alpha Centauri star system

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 - Could there be any habitable planets around the nearest star system, Alpha Centauri ABC? See article.
g Abodes - New research is helping scientists understand fundamental properties of the Earth, such as the spread of sea floors and melting of the outer core. See article.
g Life - Scientists have identified the complex sequence of movements involved in the “twitching” motility used by some bacteria. The study provides insight into evolutionary mechanisms that allow simple organisms to adapt to changing conditions in their environment. See article.
