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 - It's long been known that earthly metals like gold and silver were forged in supernova explosions, but the metals' exact origins have been shrouded in mystery. Now a new study has identified the unique nuclear recipe for silver in space. See article.
g Abodes - On Mars’s poles there are ice caps of ice and dust with layers that reflect to past climate variations on Mars. Researchers have related the layers in the ice cap on Mars’s north pole to variations in solar insolation on Mars, thus establishing the first dated climate history for Mars. See article.
g Message - What would you say to an alien that lived on a planet 22 light years away? Could you say it in 140 characters or less?
