Detecting water on the surface of exoplanets and picking up alien’s messages

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 - Detecting water on the surface of exoplanets is becoming a high priority for researchers, as surface water is considered a requirement for habitability. New research examines whether or not the “glint” of light from a planet can be interpreted as evidence for surface oceans. See article.
g Life - A small bird called a golden-collared manakin performs a tough, complex, tiring courtship dance that leaves its heart rate at some of the highest levels in the avian world, biologists say. See article.
g Message - If aliens ever sent us a message, scientists hope to pick it up in a remote part of northern California. See article.
