New system for classifying exoplanets

New system for classifying exoplanets 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 - What is the potential habitability of the nearby star Nu 2 Lupi? See article.
g Abodes - Although the number of exoplanets discovered is reaching the thousands, few are "Earth-like" in terms of their suitability for life as we know it. A team of scientists is now proposing a new system for classifying exoplanets to help identify planets that are theoretically conducive to life in less earthlike conditions. See article.
g Cosmicus - A new computer program may help track near Earth objects (NEOs) and compute more accurate orbits. Monitoring NEOs can help scientists determine whether or not they pose a risk to life's future on Earth. See article.
