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 - Scientists find new clues that a single gigantic asteroid impact ended the age of dinosaurs. See article.g Message - In 2001, California astronomers broadened the search for extraterrestrial intelligence with a new experiment to look for powerful light pulses beamed our way from other star systems. Scientists from the University of California's Lick Observatory, the SETI Institute, UC-Santa Cruz, and UC-Berkeley used the Lick Observatory's 40-inch Nickel Telescope with a new pulse-detection system capable of finding laser beacons from civilizations many light-years distant. Unlike other optical SETI searches, this new experiment is largely immune to false alarms that slow the reconnaissance of target stars. See article.g Cosmicus - A newly discovered comet will make its first-ever journey into the inner solar system later this year. Comet ISON will appear bright in the night sky starting in November 2013. See article.Get your SF book manuscript edited Amazon.com Widgets
