Star system’s dusty disk boasts large amounts of gas

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 - Every six seconds, for millions or years, comets have been colliding with one another near a star in the constellation Cetus, which is visible to the naked eye. The star hosts one of only two known dusty disks that also contain large amounts of gas. See article.
g Abodes - A new NASA-funded study finds climate model projections that show a greater rise in global temperature are likely to prove more accurate than those showing a lesser rise. The study helps narrow the range of global warming expected in the coming decades and beyond. See article.
g Message - Tired of the alien-of-the-week as depicted by "Star Trek"? Jar-Jar Binks bugging you? Are you wondering where the real space sentients are, and if they are weirder than we can even imagine? You are not alone – and in all probability, we are not alone either. At least, that’s what the folks at SETI – the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence – are betting. See article.
