META-LIFE: Biotechnologies, Synthetic Biology, A-Life and the ArtsLeonardo ebook featuring two contributions of mine: An article about Blueprints for the Unknown and an interview with bio-hacker Cathal Garvey. 
"An exo-life may not come from outer space hiting the Earth riding a meteorite but very well from the lab, designed by a scientist —unless it is an artist— weaving biology and computing in a petri dish or a bioreactor as a vessel. With biotechnologies, synthetic biology and Artificial Life, artists have opened new avenues in the artworld, going from still to autonomous objects to living creatures, exploring the thin border between animate and inanimate, confronting the grown, the evolved, the born and the built, raising aesthetical but also social, political and ethical issues. In this ground breaking collection, the editors have commission new original essays by key figures in these fields and collected over 40 articles previously published in the Leonardo Journal that document the ideas and practice of artists involved in these areas as well as theoreticians and historians. Chapters include: Between Bio, Silico and Synthetic: Of Life and Arts; Artificial Life and the Arts; Bioart; Bio-Fiction, Design, Architecture; DIY Biology-Biohacking”

Rhawn Joseph v NASA

Rhawn Joseph Ph.D. is suing NASA for “Failure to investigate alien life”
The official lawsuit document can be read here, it includes this paragraph:

"Any intelligent adult, adolescent, child, chimpanzee, monkey, dog, or rodent with even a modicum of curiosity, would approach, investigate and closely examine a bowl-shaped structure which appears just a few feet in front of them when 12 days earlier they hadn’t noticed it. But not NASA and its rover team who have refused to take even a single close up photo."

NASA has identified the ‘thing’ to be a rock which was displaced by the rover’s wheels.

Fordite, also known as Detroit agate, is old automobile paint which has hardened sufficiently to be cut and polished.”

Type 1: Separated Colors- Regular grey banding of primer layers between color layers. 

Type 2: Color on Color- Opaques and metallics. Limited colors. Small parts and special color runs.

Type 3: Color on Color- Drippy and/or striped, with multiple color on color layers with metallics … sometimes containing lace and orbital patterns, with occasional surface channeling.

Type 4: Color on Color- Opaques and metallics, with bleeding color layers, sometimes containing pitting from air bubbles as the layers formed and hardened.
