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 - NASA's next Mars rover will carry two digital color cameras on its mast, showing the surface of Mars in exquisite detail. The Curiosity rover is being prepared for launch later this year. On Mars, Curiosity will help astrobiologists study the potential for past or present life. See article.
g Cosmicus - Researchers have built the most complex biochemical circuit ever created from scratch, made with DNA-based devices in a test tube that are analogous to the electronic transistors on a computer chip. See article.
g Aftermath - What are the challenges to comprehension in initiating and maintaining strategic dialogue in highly uncertain situations — such as with extraterrestrials? See article.
