Hoax of SETI discovering alien spacecraft and the Pioneer Anomaly

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 - At 10:31 p.m. Pacific time on Aug. 5, NASA's Curiosity rover will begin the first direct search for habitable environments on Mars. See article.
g Message - Has the SETI Institute discovered three objects en route to our world? Alien spacecraft that will arrive in 2012? If you believe a widespread story now being circulated on the internet, and published by the ironically named “Pravda,” you might think so. But it’s all nonsense – it’s a rumor, a hoax, and a fabrication that uncritical web sites have reprinted without checking. See article.
g Cosmicus - The Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecrafts were launched on an outward trajectory from the Sun in 1972 and 1973. In the 1980s, navigators for the mission saw a mysterious deceleration on the two spacecraft. Now, researchers have determined the cause of this “Pioneer Anomaly.” See article.
