Why ETI will rely on electromagnetic radiation to communicate with us and testing future space exploration techniques on Devon Island

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 - New research shows how the Earth's tides have changed dramatically over thousands of years - and may change again in the future. See article.
g Message - There are great challenges in searching across the cosmos for a first transmission that could be characterized as intelligent, since its direction, spectrum and method of communication are all unknown beforehand. SETI projects necessarily make assumptions to narrow the search, the foremost being that electromagnetic radiation would be a medium of communication for advanced extraterrestrial life.See article.
g Cosmicus - Astrobiology Magazine Field Research Editor Henry Bortman recently spent two weeks on Devon Island in the Canadian Arctic with the Haughton-Mars Project. Devon is a polar desert where researchers both study local geology and biology and conduct experiments to further the exploration of the moon, Mars and other planetary bodies. See article.
