How soon until an Earth analog is discovered and potential habitability of Epsilon Indi ABC

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 Epsilon Indi ABC, a nearby star system popular in science fiction tales? See article.
g Abodes - Last week, NASA heralded the discovery of the first two Earth-sized planets orbiting a star similar to the sun. That followed NASA's tantalizing announcement only two weeks before that scientists had discovered a planet roughly twice the size of Earth orbiting at a habitable distance around a sun-like star. While none of these planets meet all the conditions for habitability, it may not be long until Kepler scientists discover one that does. See article.
g Message - In 1961 the Drake Equation launched the search for other civilizations among the stars. How does it look today? What is the chance of finding aliens? See article.
