Discovery of alien microbes will profoundly alter human society

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 - New observations of the dwarf planet Makemake indicate that, unlike Pluto, the distant world does not have an atmosphere. See article.
g Life - A new instrument could allow astrobiologists to study chirality, or "handedness," of amino acids on our solar system's icy moons, asteroids and Kuiper Belt objects. See article.
g Aftermath - Even if the public seems less than awestruck by the prospect that alien life is a bunch of microscopic bugs, astrobiologists say unequivocal discovery of microbial life beyond Earth will change human society in profound ways, some unfathomable today. See article. This article is from 2001.
