Astronauts have been left perplexed after traces of sea plankton were found on the station's exterior.

Quote

The out-of-place organisms, which were discovered clinging to the station's external windows and walls, seemed to have somehow found their way there from the oceans back on Earth.

Soon the dolphins will leave as well.

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

I'm sorry but he's not going to find the secret formula for Krabby Patties in space.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I know there's a Spongebob Squarepants joke in there somewhere.

Perhaps some insight as to how life may travel from planet to planet.

This is very interesting, to survive in space as an non-singular cell species makes it interesting. What if there was a species of aliens that can survive in the void without pressurized suits? They could colonize any planet out there without much trouble and on top of that, they would be one hell of a threat if you think about it. Instead of going through complex process of changing planet, they could just wipe out the ozone and proceed to colonize the planet.

Plankton might prove to be an ideal food source for future space missions.

That is exciting news.  Needs more investigation.

Not me... :w00t:

Then again, with our current world situations, I might reconsider.

How did they get there? I've had several "smart guy" UM members tell me flat out, 100%, that organisms cannot get from the surface to orbit without riding on a man made craft. According to these unnamed UM Members, only molecular oxygen and smaller molecules can get out of the atmosphere and into low orbit.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
