Soaking Up The Red Planets Essence And Starquakes

Soaking Up The Red Planets Essence And Starquakes
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 - An international cadre of scientists that used data from NASA's Kepler spacecraft announced the detection of stellar oscillations, or "starquakes," that yield new insights about the size, age and evolution of stars. See article.

g ABODES - Astronomers have observed a distant planet with a warm spot in the wrong place. The study brings to question current theories about the behavior of extrasolar gas giants and can help astrobiologists understand how distant solar systems form and evolve. See article.

g LIFE - In a short, violent battle that could have happened somewhere this afternoon, the lizard made a fast lunge at the dragonfly, bit its head off and turned to run away. Lunch was served. See article.

g MESSAGE - What if we examined how to communicate with extraterrestrials from a telecommunication engineer's point of view? That's the approach of Brian McConnell's book, "Beyond Contact: A Guide to SETI and Communicating with Alien Civilizations." Though the book has been out a few years now, it's still worth a read if you haven't already delved into it. For more about the book and an interview with McConnell, see article.

g COSMICUS - Setting foot on Mars isn't in the cards for most of us, but starting this week you can soak up the Red Planet's essence for just 45. See article.
