Armstrong/NASA/AP PhotoMost likely, this is the best-known picture of a flag ever taken: Buzz Aldrin standing next to the first U.S. flag planted on the Moon.

If Earthlings are really not alone, then where are all the extraterrestrial life-forms hanging out? Maybe you should check the space weather forecast. This doesn’t mean hypothetical aliens (particularly pizza-loving ones) only emerge with clear skies and starshine. However, they might not exist at all on a planet or moon getting bombarded with plasma. Now a new space weather model could help scientists find out which exoplanets, most of which are too far away from us to measure their atmospheric
