Author of the SSCCE and wrote the initial draft of the (much shorter) MCVE document here at SO. Also seen at the DrewTubeish Tube Channel, LinkedIn & Facebook.

Some of the tools formerly available at the pscode.org domain (that I controlled) can now be downloaded from my Google Share Drive.

comment What would need to be discovered to prove there is extraterrestrial life?
The definition of 'extraterrestrial' is trivial (unless you subscribe to the 'flat earth' theory, or some such nonsense). The real question here can be boiled down to 'what is life?' - a somewhat tougher question with no clear answer.
