Extraterrestrial quasicrystals

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 - An expedition to far eastern Russia that set out to find the origin of naturally occurring quasicrystals has provided convincing evidence that they arrived on Earth from outer space. See article.
g Intelligence - Singing mice (scotinomys teguina) are not your average lab rats. Their fur is tawny brown instead of the common white albino strain; they hail from the tropical cloud forests in the mountains of Costa Rica; and, as their name hints, they use song to communicate. See article.
g Cosmicus - The first images from Curiosity's color Mast Camera, or Mastcam, have been received. The images provide the first color, horizon-to-horizon glimpse of Gale Crater. See article.
