Faster developing solar system and rubber chicken survives solar storm

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 - Our solar system may have formed over a shorter period of time that we previously thought. See article.
g Abodes - New research shows that the Yellowstone "super-volcano" is less "super" but more active than previously thought. The volcano is still large enough to have been responsible for one of the largest known volcanic explosions to have occurred on Earth. See article.
g Cosmicus - A NASA video chronicles the flight of a rubber chicken during a sun storm in March, a student experiment to observe the radiation from the strongest solar tempest in nearly a decade. See article.
