It’s been a while since I’ve posted here – now that the New Year is well and truly in, I’ll bring you up to speed over the next few weeks with some of the papers I’ve published recently. For now, here’s what I wrote about dubious claims of finding extraterrestrial life at Research the Headlines:

When a newspaper like the Daily Express publishes headlines such as “GHOST PARTICLE: The picture proof which shows aliens ARE out there“, you might be forgiven for getting excited, now that we know we are not alone in the Universe. But should we get excited? How does this particle prove the existence of extraterrestrial life?
