Neptune’s first orbit completed since being discovered and a solution to Fermi Paradox

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 - On July 11, 2011, Neptune made its first full orbit of the Sun since its discovery in 1846. See article.
g Message - If we are not alone in the universe, why have we never picked up signals from an extraterrestrial civilization? Known as the Fermi paradox after physicist Enrico Fermi, who first posed the question, this long-standing puzzle remains one of the strongest arguments against the existence of intelligent aliens. But two physicists say they have come up with a solution. They suggest a way in which aliens could send messages to each other across space that not only disguises their locations but also makes it impossible for a casual observer to even distinguish the messages from background noise. See article.
g Cosmicus - New research is shedding light on how hole punch clouds are formed. The study could help explain local weather phenomenon, such as increased precipitation around major airports. See article.
