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 - By analyzing images of Titan's river networks, researchers have determined that in some regions, rivers have created surprisingly little erosion. This means that erosion on Titan may be extremely slow, or some other phenomena may have wiped out older riverbeds and landforms. See article.g Cosmicus - A team of aquanauts were recently joined by ESA astronaut Tim Peake to test communication strategies for a future mission to an asteroid. The explorers spent 12 days underwater on the Neemo mission simulating a trip to an asteroid 15 million kilometers from Earth. See article.g Learning - Edinburgh University’s upcoming free course, “Introduction to Astrobiology and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life” will open up an exciting new era in the study of extraterrestrial life. According to Jeff Haywood, vice principal of the University of Edinburgh, the number of students for the online course is potentially 100,000 or more. The course reflects the ever increasing global awareness of the possibility of extraterrestrial life and its societal implications. See article.Get your SF book manuscript edited Amazon.com Widgets
