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 - Using date from Kepler, researchers have statistically determined that most solar systems are similar to our own in that they are “flatter than pancakes.” See article.
g Abodes - Using computer simulations, researchers have predicted the amount of methane that might be seen by the Curiosity rover. Detecting methane on Mars could be significant in the search for signs of life on the red planet. See article.
g Message - Fearing an alien invasion? It is not likely to happen! The discovery of planets supporting alien life may be possible within the next 50 years, however, it is likely that extra terrestrials will find Earth too "boring" to bother with, renowned UK astronomer Sir Patrick Moore says.
