    1. As astronomers get closer to finding potential signatures of life on faraway planets, a new mathematical description shows how to understand life's spread — and to determine if it's jumping from star to star. "Life could spread from host star to host star in a pattern similar to the outbreak of an epidemic," study co-author Avi Loeb of the Harvard- Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) said...

      ( Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ) Avi Loeb, chair of the Harvard Astronomy Department and director of the Institute for Theory and Computation, has published a new eBook: 'From the First Star to Milkomeda.'

    3. ( Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ) New research by Harvard astrophysicists shows that if life can travel between the stars (a process called panspermia), it would spread in a characteristic pattern that we could potentially identify.

    4. astroengine writes: As astronomical techniques become more advanced, a team of astrophysicists think they will be able to not only detect the signatures of alien life in exoplanetary atmospheres, but also track its relentless spread throughout the galaxy. The research, headed by Henry Lin of the Harvard- Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA), assumes that this feat may be possible in a ...

      IANS via Yahoo Maktoob NewsAug 04 03:25 AM

      Washington, Aug 4 (IANS) Astronomers have discovered the closest-ever rocky and transiting planet outside our solar system. At a distance of barely 21 light-years, the planet - named HD 219134 - is by far the closest transiting planet to Earth which makes it ideal for follow-up studies. Its host star is visible to the unaided eye in dark skies, meaning anyone with a good star map can see this ...
