Is Vesta a small planet and habitability of Barnard’s Star

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 Barnard’s Star, the second closest solar system to Earth? See article.
g Abodes - NASA's Dawn spacecraft spent the last four years voyaging to asteroid Vesta - and may have found a planet. See article.
g Aftermath - Given the plethora of New Age/UFOlogy Web sites about alien contact, it’s refreshing to find one that’s serious. Try the “extraterrestrial intelligence, implications following first contact” entry at astrobiologist David Darling’s site “The Encyclopedia of Astrobiology, Astronomy, and Spaceflight”. It includes some links and a mini reference list.
