Did the Moon once have smaller, companion moon and Search for Extraterrestrial Visible

Emissions from Nearby Developed Intelligent Populations 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 - The mountainous region on the far side of the Moon may be the remains of a collision with a smaller companion moon. See article.
g Message - The extent of the SETI project is by no means limited to scanning radio frequencies. SEVENDIP stands for the “Search for Extraterrestrial Visible Emissions from Nearby Developed Intelligent Populations,” an Optical SETI effort. SEVENDIP employs a 30-inch automated telescope located in Lafayette, California to scan the sky for potential signals from E.T. Since its inception in 1997, SEVENDIP has pioneered the use of optical technology to search for nanosecond time-scale pulses—pulses that could be generated by the powerful laser of a distant civilization. See article.
g Cosmicus - Astrobiology Magazine Field Research Editor Henry Bortman recently spent a week in British Columbia with scientists from the Pavilion Lake Research Project. In his fifth report he describes behind-the-scenes software that helps PLRP achieve its scientific goals. See article.
