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 - Using data from NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) spacecraft, an international team of researchers has measured neutral "alien" particles entering our solar system from interstellar space. A suite of studies published in the Astrophysical Journal provides a first look at the constituents of the interstellar medium, the matter between star systems, and how they interact with our heliosphere. See article.g Abodes - Exoplanets are now being discovered at pace, and some have been described as "Earth-Like." These claims are often based on the distance between the exoplanet and its host star. Unfortunately, this distance isn't all that makes a planet habitable. See article.g Life - A new theory asserts that the Earth is alive - including purportedly inanimate, non-living objects like water, proteins and DNA. See article.g Cosmicus - Atomic-level defects in graphene could be a path forward to smaller and faster electronic devices, according to a study led by researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
