The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) is expanding. Dominated for decades by the search for radio transmissions from aliens, SETI has recently included optical searches for laser beams. A third SETI option, the search for extraterrestrial artefacts, is also gathering pace. Astronomers have conducted searches for Dyson Spheres using data from infrared astronomical satellites. Dyson Spheres are hypothetical shells built around entire solar systems, which could only be constructed by ci ... read more

Early Titan Was a Cold, Hostile Place For Life
Titan is a mysterious orange-socked moon of Saturn that is exciting to astrobiologists because it has some of the same kinds of chemicals that were precursors to life on Earth. It also has a hydrolo ... more

We're not alone - but the universe may be less crowded than we think
There may be far fewer galaxies further out in the universe then might be expected, according to a new study led by Michigan State University. Over the years, the Hubble Space Telescope has allowed ... more
Water-Rich Moons Could Form in 'Goldilocks Zone'
Exomoons are the wildcard in the ongoing chase for habitable worlds. Astronomers have discovered more than 1,900 exoplanets, a few of which might be friendly to life, but no moons circling these ali ... more
Iron: A biological element?
Think of an object made of iron: An I-beam, a car frame, a nail. Now imagine that half of the iron in that object owes its existence to bacteria living two and a half billion years ago. That's the u ... more
Nonphotosynthetic pigments could be biosignatures of life on other worlds
To find life in the universe, it helps to know what it might look like. If there are organisms on other planets that do not rely wholly on photosynthesis - as some on Earth do not - how might those ... more
Atmospheric signs of volcanic activity could aid search for life
