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 - The earliest life on Earth might have been just as purple as it is green today, a scientist claims. See article.
g Cosmicus - The technology behind 3D printing has allowed users to craft musical instruments and prosthetic limbs, and now European scientists are taking a serious look at printing their own moon base. See article.
