Really close exoplanets and potential habitability of Upsilon Andromedae AB

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 the nearby star system Upsilon Andromedae AB? See article.
g Abodes - Astronomers have discovered a new, two-planet system where the planets are closer to each other than any other system yet found. The discovery is providing new data about the diversity of worlds that exist around distant stars. See article.
g Message - TV programs about space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) often say our broadcast signals are traveling into space and will someday be seen by intelligent beings many light years from here. On the other hand, the program “Life After People” said these signals disperse after a few light years and are too scattered and weak for anyone to see or hear them. Which is true? See article.
