Earth’s mini-moons and a computational system that learns and evolves

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 - Astronomers have found that the Earth has mini-moons that can orbit our planet for less than a year at a time before returning to their normal positions as asteroids orbiting the Sun. See article.
g Life - New research shows that a person's presence in a room can add 37 million bacteria to the air every hour, most of which is material left behind by previous occupants and stirred up from the floor. See article.
g Intelligence - Using a model inspired by the human brain, scientists are developing an adaptable computational system that learns and evolves. See article.
