Contacting ETI via sunlight

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 - A new study shows that the Moon has more in common with large asteroids than previously believed. The research could shed light on a period early in Earth's history when our planet was bombarded by impacts. See article.
g Life - A new study shows that DNA molecules can be transcribed into a molecule known as TNA, and then reverse transcribed back to DNA with the aid of commercially available enzymes. See article.
g Message - A pair of U.S. astrobiologists have come up with a cunningly simply way of attracting the attention of alien lifeforms - just cover half the Moon's surface with mirrors to throw back some extra sunlight in ET's direction. See article.
