Meteorite ‘gold rush’ on Earth

Welcome! "Alien Life" tracks the latest discoveries and thoughts in the various elements of the famous Drake Equation. Here's today's news:
g Life - Scientists studying how songbirds stay on key have developed a statistical explanation for why some things are harder for the brain to learn than others. See article.
g Message - For more than 80 years, we’ve been sending radio (and eventually television) transmissions into space, allowing anyone in space to hear war reports from London, “I Love Lucy” reruns and our latest election results. So wouldn’t hearing aliens be as simple as turning on the radio? Here’s why not. This article is from 2004.
g Cosmicus - A new tool is helping improve the odds of identifying meteorite falls on Earth. Using weather radars, scientists have helped identify three confirmed meteorites in the United States alone in the past eight months. See article.
