Ancient streambed on Mars

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 - Curiosity has found evidence of a stream that once ran vigorously across the surface of Mars. This is the first evidence of its kind for ancient water on Mars. See article.
g Life - New research on a lizard-like amphibian highlights how difficult it would be for humans to regenerate a limb or organ. See article.
g Learning - In wanting to better assess whether life could be elsewhere, astrobiology has also set out on the more homely tasks of understanding how life evolved on the Earth, how life has persisted on our own planet for over three-and-a-half billion years and how it manages to thrive in extremes that to humans seem completely inimical to life. See article.
