Boogers in space.


Haven't they ever seen 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH?

Maybe the scientific community would be able to combine the alien dna with a wooly mammoth and see what develops.

What could go wrong?

Come on, astronauts. Go outside, scrape some of that alien bacteria off the hull and send it back to earth where it can be properly studied.
Sheesh--haven't any of you people ever watched any science fiction?

Germs... in... space !!

"He added that the samples are being probed by scientists and seem to be safe."

Famous last words.

Forget the bacteria. This is THE SUN and I'm going to peruse the "Page 3 Stunner". Whoa doggy !

I welcome our new bacterial overlords.

Somebody send up a Star Trek universal translator and ask the little fuzzies what they want.

H. Beam Piper would have been proud.

Anyone else ever read The Andromeda Strain back in the 70's? I didn't know that book would become a prophecy.
