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 - In part three of The Great Exoplanet Debate, the panel discusses our broadening view of the habitable zone around different star types, and our preconceptions of what makes a habitable environment. See article.
g Abodes - Curiosity's ChemCam has identified what might be chemical similarities on the surface of very different martian rocks. Could the chemical signatures be attributed to dust that settled on the rocks... or might it be something else? See article.
g Message - We’ve all heard of SETI, bit what about METI — “Messaging to Extraterrestrial Intelligence,” or sending both scientific and artistic messages to the stars? See article.
