Not sure exactly when it came out. This is the _The_ Royal Society. There is an article by Frank Drake and an article by Mazlan Othman, the UN head of the Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) who everybody thought was going to be the 'ET Ambassador' a few months ago. This is really big. It is packed with scholarly articles on extraterrestrial life. ----- Source: http://rsta.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/current February 13, 2011 - The detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science and society - Astrobiology, space and the future age of discovery - Life in the lithosphere, kinetics and the prospects for life elsewhere - The evolution of organic matter in space - Predicting what extra- terrestrials will be like: and preparing for the worst - Exoplanets: the quest for Earth twins - Extra-terrestrial life in the European Space Agency’s Cosmic Vision plan and beyond - The search for life in our Solar System and the implications for science and society - Chemical methods for searching for evidence of extra- terrestrial life - Life as a cosmic imperative? - Searching for a shadow biosphere on Earth as a test of the ‘cosmic imperative’ - The search for extra- terrestrial intelligence - The implications of the discovery of extra- terrestrial life for religion - Fear, pandemonium, equanimity and delight: human responses to extra-terrestrial life - Is life what we make of it? - Discovery of extra- terrestrial life: assessment by scales of its importance and associated risks - Supra- Earth affairs ----- Now I have to go wipe the drool off my chin and order a print copy of this thing.
